The lively research-orientated atmosphere of our department offers a stimulating environment for graduate research.
As a normative discipline theological ethics is developed through an intensive dialogue between the Christian (esp.
the Catholic moral-theological and personalist) tradition, philosophy and the sciences, and the contemporary social, cultural and (bio)technological context.
In both cases, their previous studies should normally have included a dissertation, or equivalent, demonstrating ability to present the result of independent study and research.
You are encouraged to contact a potential supervisor before applying to discuss your proposed research project (see Staff and Groups section).
These research units have been entrusted with the teaching of theology and religious studies in the Faculty programmes, with research, with the formation of research personnel, and with social and ecclesiastical services related to each discipline.
Point of departure for our ethical research are the moral experiences of concrete persons living in our complex, globalised world and their quest for genuine human flourishing.
Students can pursue traditional areas of study through Theology and Biblical Studies.
Central to our department too is the social scientific study of religion, together with philosophy of religion, the world of Jews in modern Europe, contemporary Islamic thought, and Chinese religions.

If you don't have a suitable qualification for direct entry to a UK university, or if English isn't your first language, our academic preparation courses can help you get ready for study in the UK.
