MA - Theology
The Master's degree in Theology at Radboud Universiteit is a comprehensive academic programme with four main disciplines: literary, historical, systematic, and practical theology (the study of the source texts of Judaism and Christianity, the history of Church and theology, and of systematic and practical theology). In the programme you will become adept at analysing the central concepts and practices of faith in order to contribute to the implementation of the tasks of theology in our current world (especially science, church and society). The skills belonging to the scientific disciplines are practiced at a level that will prepare students to further develop independently in one of the chosen specialisations and scientific research. In short, the students familiarise themselves with the full spectrum of theology, while given the opportunity to specialise in one disciplinary specialisation.

The programme is broad and after the first year you will specialise further and select your profile. In year one, you choose eight modules including at least one from each of the three groups listed below. In year two, you choose six modules, at least three of which must belong to the group in which you will write your Master's Thesis. You can choose the same subjects as the ones you studied in the first year, because the content changes each year. In addition, you can choose a number of elective subjects. In the third year you can specialise on one subject.
