Course description

Qualification Master of Arts
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary The specialisation in Practical Theology aims to provide understanding of the dynamics and meaning of lived religion at four levels: personal, inter-group relations, organisational and societal level.
Course description Have God and religion disappeared in society? According to some scholars of religion there is a global resurgence of religion, yet, secularisation in most European societies continues. How can theology understand the transformation of the Christian religion in society? We need fresh expressions of theological concepts and new methods of research which will enable us to understand lived religion beyond traditional shapes of religiosity. In the Master's specialisation in Practical Theology, students are introduced in theological theory-building to understand the dynamics and meaning of lived religion at four different levels: the personal, inter-group relations, organisational and societal level. Students learn to use empirical research methods, which are needed to build new theological theory on lived religion. Graduates of this Master's specialisation in Practical Theology can become researchers, policy makers, educators or spiritual caregivers.
Study subjects During specialisation in Practical Theology students learn to use empirical research methods, which are needed to build new theological theory on lived religion. They follow the Practical Theology seminar and choose 2 seminars: Exegesis, History of Church and Theology or Systematic Theology, and one of the 2 practical courses: Pastoral Theology or Missiology. Also, students choose elective courses in order to construct the most suitable programme to cover their individual focus of interest.
Course objectives Our graduates have an analytical attitude and skills which help them participate in debates in the public arena using arguments based on their Christian faith and convey it in society. They are able to promote religious self-reflection based on the texts, institutions, ideas and practices of the various religions and have understanding of how to build new theological theory on lived religion. They can apply their knowledge as researchers, policy makers, educators or spiritual caregivers.
