Master of Advanced Studies in Theology and Religion (60 ECTS) Master of Arts
Rules for the composition of my study programme:
a. Students choose a major and take the two courses on offer (8 credits) as well as the corresponding seminar (4 credits) and research course (4 credits).
b. As a rule, students take five courses from the five majors outside the major in which they specialize; these courses can be either 'courses' or 'research courses'. One out of these five can also be a 'seminar'.
c. Students are free to take any course, or research course as an elective.
d. Students write a thesis. It is strongly recommended that they have a knowledge of those languages which are useful or necessary for their research.
ebis. Students who choose the major Biblical Studies, need to have a knowledge of Hebrew and Greek. They have to add these courses in their ISP if they did not do this prior to entering the Master of Advanced Studies in Theology and Religion program.
fbis. Students who choose the major History of Church and Theology, need to have a knowledge of Latin and Greek. They have to add these courses in their ISP if they did not do this prior to entering the Master of Advanced Studies in Theology and Religion program.
g. Instead of the courses, seminars, research courses or electives of this program, students are free to choose an equivalent from the programs of the theological faculty of the Université Catholique de Louvain, Louvain-la-Neuve.
Students must submit their request to do so to the Secretary of the Teaching Committee.
Students, who took one of the following courses, will have to select an alternative course during the academic year 2012-2013 (will not be granted an exemption):
- A06B0A: Contextual Theologies: Challenges and Methodes
- A00C4A: Environmental Ethics
- A02C1A: Church and Theology in Antiquity
Students are free to choose their electives (8 credits) from
(a) all other courses or research courses on offer or
(b) the list below.
Students can, as part of their own study project, and on the condition of an adequate motivation, add program components from other educational programmes inside or outside of KU Leuven.
The elective courses can be replaced by (interdisciplinary) projects as part of individual initiatives, (international) exchange programmes, departmental activities (e.g. conferences), projects of research centres and groups. Such proposals can be made by the relevant groups, the students and/or professors, and the Teaching Committee. The Teaching Committee will approve these projects on a yearly basis.
The courses A07E1A (Liturgical Research Seminar), A07E2A (Liturgy in the West: History and Context), A07E3A (Proficient Latin for Liturgists), A07I2A (Theology of the Liturgy), A07I3A (The Eucharist in History), A07I4A (Research Seminar in Liturgical Studies) en A07I5A (Western Liturgical Books) are taught in cooperation with the Institutum Liturgicum in Anglia et Cambria and are organized in the summer. They can only be added in students' ISP on the condition that they were taken in the summer preceding the academic year.
