Studying theology and religious studies is no easy task in a rapidly changing cultural climate. We are therefore well aware that it takes a lot of courage and motivation from students to embark on the study. DE FPTR is committed to two principles: flexibility and diversity.
There is the possibility to study full-time, part-time or a combination of both, attending lectures in Brussels and/or taking modules online. With this flexibility, we want to meet the difficulties of having to come to Brussels almost every day. Caring for the planet is also a theological issue. This means that FPTR is gradually putting more effort into digital education. We aim to offer the entire curriculum digitally via the internet by 2021. At 'E-Learning' you can see what is already digitally possible.
Theology was once the mother of all sciences. It was considered the crowning glory of university education, with the other 'arts' acting as servants. These days are long gone. Today, theology is a not insignificant facet of (ancient) linguistics, history and cultural studies. This theoretical foundation is laid and held together by the cement of Bible and hermeneutics, mixed with a good dose of human science (anthropology, psychology, sociology, etc.). This results in a very diverse scholarly perspective, unfolding from the Judeo-Christian tradition.
