What makes Salzburg so special as a place to study?
Let’s face it: you can’t study any more beautifully than in Salzburg, and even more so at the Faculty of Theology in the heart of the old town. But that is by far not all!

We ensure this through • first-class education at the highest level • good studyability of our studies • not just training, but education: with a broad range of personal development programmes that go beyond specialist training • a familiar atmosphere on a manageable faculty • with an open and friendly atmosphere: with us you are not a number! • excellent supervision by committed teachers who are willing to get involved with you • an extremely lively student life • a wide range of opportunities for international study experiences and • a near job guarantee: graduates of our theological degree programmes are desperately sought after!
