Top Courses in Theology

A course is an educational scheme that introduces students to an area of study. Students learn the basics of the discipline, and upon graduation they receive a diploma or certificate.

What is a course in theology? Depending on the school or program, these courses can be either confessional or non-confessional. In the case of the former, students learn the tenants of a given religious tradition and have the chance to formulate and defend their own interpretation of scripture. Non-confessional courses, on the other hand, study the ways in which religious thought has evolved through time and the impact it has had on religious practice. Coursework is generally reading and writing intensive, with an emphasis on critical and analytical thinking. 

Religion is a key component of many people's lives, and there is therefore a high demand for theological understanding. Studying theology can be quite personally beneficial in this regard. Students can come to better understand their own faith, as well as the beliefs of others.

Each program will involve different expenses, such as tuition and registration fees. These costs vary from school to school based on the school's size and location. Contact programs directly for more information. 

A course in theology, whether confessional or not, can lead to a number of careers. Students can opt to go into priesthood or join a seminary. On the other hand, students who are more interested in the academic study of religion can seek higher-level degrees in the subject and become academics in the field of religious studies. Religion also plays a key part in diplomacy, which means that particularly ambitious graduates can put their learning to use as a foundation for a career in global politics.

In the end, a course in theology can open the door to both personal understanding and a range of career options. Students who are interested in learning more about the various available programs are encouraged to utilize our searchable listing of schools.

Japan Lutheran Theological SeminaryEvangelists who convey the gospel of human liberation, pastor who brings healing of the soul

Although the economy and science and technology have developed wonderfully, it is a world that can not be realized that each and every human being became happy. Rather, the sum of people weakened, the number of people who suffered from the heart has increased, and the purpose of life is difficult to see. Love is cold, hope is getting uncertain. Even religion is an era that can be seen with stinging eyes. That is why I want to look deeply at human beings, in front of the absolute god, in the light, to listen to God's word to regain true humanity. Prayers and storytellers are necessary so that love and compassion, righteousness and peace will be added to this world, so that we can release ourselves from the crime of eroding human beings and restore the joyful freshness to the soul. The seminary will train pastors for that purpose.... [-]

Why Rome?

From ancient Roman mythology to a modern-day papal audience, there is no denying religion’s integral role in Rome’s culture throughout history.

What You'll Study

Our Sociology & Religion Program takes you through millennia of Rome’s religious and cultural development. Courses consider the emergence of Christianity in the Roman Empire, the history of Judaism in Rome, social issues in modern Italy, and more. Opportunities to enroll in a Religious Studies or Social Science course at Università degli Studi Roma Tre add to your curriculum, and an Italian language course rounds out your Sociology or Religion focus.

Imagine spending an afternoon in Rome’s Jewish quarter or a day in Assisi taking a pilgrimage walk to the landmarks in the life of St. Francis.... [-]
