What will I learn?
Both the BA and the MA degree teacher training programmes in Catholic Religion Education offer a comprehensive overview of the central elements of the Christian faith and its expressions in history and present age. In addition, students will learn about the basic elements of other religions, spiritualities and Weltanschauungen. Students learn various academic methods to interpret texts from the Bible and traditional texts. By doing so, they strengthen their ability to argument and judge in discussions about the church and society. Their education enables them to accompany human beings and their questions about faith, meaning and happiness. Students receive the required practical experience in a school at the University’s School of Education.
What makes Salzburg so special as a place to study?
In the centre of one of the most beautiful cities of Europe, the Faculty of Catholic Theology at the University of Salzburg offers you an academic locus which meets the global challenges of modern life. With the Fakultätsschwerpunkt "Theologie interkulturell und Studium der Religionen" (Intercultural Theology and Religious Studies) we focus on different cultural religious contexts and examine the meaning of faith for the modern post-secular society. Our students’ contentment lies close to our faculty’s heart. Small courses, constant support and a personal atmosphere contribute to our students’ well-being.
Which career opportunities do I have?
Teacher of Religious Education at schools (HS, NMS, Gymnasium, BMS, BHS); occupations in ecclesiastical fields such as, e.g., pastoral assistant, hospital chaplaincy, youth work, NGOs, etc.
