The doctoral programme in Theology is designed for graduates from previous programmes of the second cycle of higher education who wish to enhance their knowledge and acquire necessary competences in the area of theology and wider areas of humanities and social sciences. The basic goals of the doctoral programme are to prepare the candidates for top-level independent, critical-reflective, interdisciplinary and polyvalent research work, for solving the most abstract and complex issues, and for the interpretation of new cognitions in theology. The graduates will acquire a series of competences related to their future research work in theology, as well as a series of practical competences, such as skills in intercultural and interreligious meditation and coordination between different domains of humanities and social sciences.

The doctoral programme in Theology is organized by the Faculty of Theology. The programme integrates two scientific areas, Theology and Marital and Family Therapy. In addition to the individual student’s research, the programme includes a series of subjects offering students the necessary theoretical knowledge and practical skills for their research. According to the content, the subjects are classified as the compulsory general subject, compulsory specific subjects, optional specific subjects and external optional subjects. The students are allowed to participate in international exchange schemes such as Socrates/Erasmus.
