INSTITUTIONAL PROFILE

The Catholic Faculty of Theology (CFT) conducts university undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate scientific and specialised study programmes, as well as professional study programme. University study programmes are conducted in two fields: theology and music. Theological studies at the CFT from its conception have been organized in a strict ecclesiastical sense, i.e. orientated towards students who are candidates for the priesthood, as well as members of male and female religious orders. At the beginning of the 1960’s a need was felt for broader pursuit in scientific and ecclesiastical-practical activity, hence the Faculty established a scientific and teaching institute. In a newly orientated and organizational situation with four study programmes, the Faculty developed a modern study programme and suitable adjustments, monitoring the development in particular areas of science, trends within ecclesiastical activity, here in Croatia and in the world.

Within the field of theology the Faculty conducts the Integrated Undergraduate and Graduate Philosophical-theological Study Programme, the Study Programme in Religious Pedagogy and Catechetics (from academic year 2014/2015, the University Undergraduate Study Programme in Religious Pedagogy and Catechetics, and the University Graduate Study Programme in Religious Pedagogy and Catechetics), and the Undergraduate Professional Study Programme in Theology (Theological Culture). Within the field of music the Faculty conducts the University Undergraduate Study Programme in Church Music. The regional Study of Theology in Rijeka conducts the Integrated Undergraduate and Graduate Philosophical-theological Study Programme. At the University of Zagreb one can enrol in the Philosophical-theological Study Programme, the Study Programme in Religious Pedagogy and Catechetics, the Study Programme in Church Music, and the Professional Study Programme in Theology only at the Catholic Faculty of Theology. The student gains competence in a general knowledge of theological subjects and a first initiation into scientific and theological research. It promotes a systematic and practical theology. The study of philosophy establishes a relationship between philosophical thinking and theology, while an acquaintance with psychological and the socials subjects embraces an anthropological-theological culture necessary for an enculturation of faith in people. Studying pastoral, religious-pedagogical, catechetical, historical, and legal-spiritual and musical subjects gives a person proficiency in formational-educational work. Through lectures, seminars, and exercises a suitable method is adopted – positive and speculative – and various forms of action are applied to develop a love for an authentic search of the truth.
The Faculty structures and conducts the postgraduate scientific study programme for the doctoral degree in the area of humanistic studies and in the field of theological studies. Since the Catholic Faculty of Theology is also an ecclesial institution for higher education – regulated by the relevant acts of the Holy See, which has not abated the licentiate study by joining the Bologna Process – a candidate who enrols in the postgraduate study programme at the Faculty has to write and defend a licentiate thesis before s/he could submit a doctoral proposal.

RESEARCH ORIENTATION

There are several main research orientations of CFT, and all of them are related to particular challenges and needs of present social and ecclesiastical demands. In the first place there is a research in the field of ecumenism and interreligious dialogue focused on the possibilities and opportunities of a dialogical approach to other religious communities, e.g. orthodox Christians and Muslims. Furthermore, there is research in the field of Bible and its relation to a broader Croatian cultural heritage. Special research attention is dedicated to bioethics and social ethics with particular emphases on various moral issues raised by the current developments in the field of biotechnology and within a whole complex of the European integration processes. There is also a research activity in the field of Croatian historical relations with the rest of Europe, especially with the West. Within that framework research is focused on the Croatian contribution to European integrations from fifteenth to twentieth century.

INSTITUTIONAL PROFILE

The Centre for Croatian Studies was designed to impart knowledge in humanities and social sciences through interdisciplinary studies of Croatian language and culture, History, Latin language, Philosophy, Sociology, Communication science, and Psychology. Founded in 1992 as an independent department for Croatian language and culture, it offered one undergraduate and one graduate programme. Over the years, the Centre grew into a sizeable unit of the University of Zagreb with eight departments, and it is now recognised as an institution offering a variety of competitive and well-rounded study programmes in humanities and social sciences.

PROGRAMME EMPHASIS

The programmes are designed on a single-honours and double-honours basis. In the first three years of undergraduate studies (B.A.), students acquire the basics of their respective fields of study and a broad knowledge of other disciplines in social sciences and humanities. Students are required to obtain a minimum of 180 ECTS credit by the end of their undergraduate programme.
At the graduate level (M.A.), students of all programmes acquire more specialized knowledge in their selected field of study, and choose between two models of study: research or teacher training track. In two years of graduate studies, students are required to obtain a minimum of 120 ECTS credits.
Three programmes are offered also at the postgraduate level (Ph.D.) - in Croatian language and culture, Philosophy and History - with strong emphasis on research and close supervision. The programmes require a minimum of three years for completion (4 semesters of coursework and 2 semesters for dissertation, 180 ECTS credits in total), normally extended to five years.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Graduates from the Centre for Croatian Studies can find employment in primary and secondary schools and higher-education institutions, cultural institutions, public administration, in broadcasting and television institutions, media corporations, tourism, research institutes, consular and diplomatic missions, libraries etc., depending on their subject and programme model.
