What will I learn?

They develop an awareness of religions’ complexity and their potential to change. Further contents are the analysis of the correlation between religion and culture and the critical examination of different forms of spirituality and religiousness.

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! For it is a special concern of ours to offer our students a first-class place for academic education and personal development. 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
