What makes Salzburg so special as a place to study?
Located in the centre of one of the most beautiful cities in 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 and 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, regular individual support and a personal atmosphere contribute to our students’ well-being.
