Overview

The appeal of the Theology programmw offered by Tilburg University  is that it is a broad and multi-perspective study, with textual, historical, philosophical and sociological approaches. Therefore you will meet a wide range of subjects, e.g. biblical exegesis, history, philosophy, systematic theology, pastoral theology, and world religions.

We offer you our curriculum by using lectures and seminars. You will be solidly trained in reading, writing essays and giving presentations. In order to get access to the Bible and the historical sources from the Christian tradition, we will teach you Hebrew, Greek and Latin. You will then be able to read texts from the Old and New Testament and various texts from the beginning of Christianity to the Second Vatican Council in their original languages.

As a Theology student you will be part of a small and international classroom with students from all over the world and from all kinds of back grounds. Especially in a study such as Theology it is very valuable to work together and learn from each other’s perspectives and at the same time share important values.

Career prospects

Theologians work as spiritual counselors in hospitals, prisons or in the army, as pastoral workers in the Catholic Church, as journalists or as policy makers in (sustainable) companies or banks. 

The Bachelor's degree in Theology also gives you direct access to three Master’s Programs in the field of theology, christianity and society and religious education.
