Courses in English

The department offers courses in History of Ideas as well as Religious studies and Theology, most of them at the advanced level (Second Cycle) in English.

The studies for a degree in the Second Cycle normally take one year – the Degree of Master (One Year/60 Higher Education Credits) – or two years – the Degree of Master (Two Years/120 hec). Courses in this cycle assume that you have studied in the First Cycle. To be qualified for a programme that begins in the Second Cycle, you must fulfil the degree requirements in the First Cycle of 180 hec, or have corresponding previous knowledge.
