Theology

A Masters degree gives you the opportunity to either further your understanding of a particular question or take off in a completely different way using skills you have gained from your previous undergraduate degree.

Theology is a fascinating study of religious traditions throughout the centuries and their effects on world economics, politics and history. While some students may go on to work within a specific faith, others can use this degree to deepen their understanding of the divine as well as of people’s beliefs.

We are what we remember, what we tell ourselves we were and what our ancestors died for. Thousands of years ago, people in the Middle East decided to put in writing, for the first time in history, the questions that do not expire.

There will be no special program either for the laity or for the priests. For all, he will be the same at all levels: Graduate, License, Diploma of Approfondies (DEA), Doctorate.... [-]
