About

The two-year Advanced Studies in Theology and Religion programme at KU Leuven offers you a broad perspective on what theology and religious studies are all about. After graduation, you will have obtained a broad yet profound theoretical foundation in the great European traditions of thought and you will be able to move with ease as a dialogue partner in a diverse range of theological fields.

Overview

Today’s theology students are faced with the momentous task of making relevant contributions to modern culture. This requires a thorough and interdisciplinary academic training. With this in mind, the Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies insists on developing well-rounded and highly trained scholars with critical minds. The Master of Advanced Studies in Theology and Religion programme at KU Leuven equips students to function as experts in Church and society and prepares them for further research specifically oriented towards the Doctoral Programme in Theology.

Guided by the Faculty's world-renowned Faculty members, whose individual areas of expertise span the breadth and depth of theology, you will learn to give shape to your own independence, and transform it into a project with the potential to lead into doctoral studies. And rest assured: research at Leuven is second to none. Just ask Jansenius, Erasmus, or Louis Janssens – names from Leuven’s rich and ongoing history that spring to life in the Faculty’s peerless library, containing countless priceless volumes and ancient manuscripts. 

Career perspectives:

The research master’s programme prepares you for admission to the Doctoral Programme in Theology, but also for a variety of careers in sectors including teaching in secondary and higher education, business, publishing, academia, the media, the socio-cultural sector, and various domains of pastoral care. You will also develop skills that are valued by a large number of employers. These include research, analytical and presentation skills, critical thinking, organizational and time management skills, teamwork, and communication and writing skills. Many graduates use these skills while pursuing an international career as experts in the Church and society.
