About the School
The main focus of the school is research and education in theology and religious studies. Theology has a long and complex history in Tartu, extending back to the Middle Ages and it has been taught at the University of Tartu since the university was founded in 1632. Religious studies as a separate field of research and education has developed in the past few decades. The school tries to build upon longstanding traditions as well as adapt to the modern world around it, creating an intricate, but productive environment for present and future development. Until 2015, the school was called the Faculty of Theology.
Both theology and religious studies are represented in the curriculum at BA, MA, and PhD level.
