The purpose of the field of Catholic theology is to conduct academic study into the Christian understanding of faith, which is based on the historical revelation of God in the Old and New Testament and the interpretation of this revelation by the church community. The various subdisciplines of the field (biblical theology, ecclesiastical history, philosophy, systematic and practical theology) provide a wealth of critical methods for reflecting on faith. The curriculum touches on issues of literary and historical studies, art and cultural history, philosophy, the social sciences, and law. Students of Catholic theology learn to approach basic theological data from an academic perspective, to act appropriately and cooperatively in the areas of school, church, and society out of a sense of theological responsibility, and to teach these abilities to others. In addition to the traditional subdisciplines biblical, historical, and systematic theology, the teacher education program places emphasis on the pedagogy of religion, which also involves knowledge of the foundations of religious life and learning. The student of the teacher education program, who will subsequently represent the subject of Catholic religion at public secondary schools in Germany, is familiarized with the psychological concepts of religious learning and the teaching methodology of theology through theoretical training and concrete teaching practice.


Please note:
In the summer semester 2020 and in the winter semester 2020/21 there may be deviations from individual regulations of the admission regulations, selection and entrance examination regulations as well as the study and examination regulations from the Corona Statutes [de].

Disclaimer
The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
