About Theology at Károli Gáspár University

The Reformed Theological Academy of Budapest, the predecessor of the Faculty of Theology of Károli Gáspár University, has been issuing doctoral degrees since World War II.  In addition to granting PhD titles, the doctoral council conferred the title of doctor honoris causa to famous academic and public personalities in Hungary and abroad.
Language of instruction: English

Programme Structure

The Doctoral School prepares candidates in the field of theology. The aim of the programme is to teach students the most recent research methodology, to prepare them for individual academic work and to participate in conferences, and to help them gain teaching experience in higher education.

The timetable is set up for each and every doctoral student individually, based on the chosen research area. The education is carried out in the framework of a tutorial system. We encourage students to participate in international conferences and give lectures. The Doctoral and Habilitation Council of Theology takes the previously gained experiences in to consideration and tailors the educational methods accordingly.

The majority of our professors have obtained their PhD degree at foreign universities. They continually publish articles in English language professional journals and have their foreign language books published. Besides organising international conferences, they often participate as lecturers at such events.

    "It is my honor to know you, our dean and other teachers of our university, to study at KRE. I don’t write it as a formality: you are amazing persons. You helped us in each and every step of us. Thanks for everything.

    Of course, as a graduate I am also part of the KRE family and I always would like to see my university among the best universities of the world. During the course LL.M. teachers were really kind, polite and tried to do their best to teach us everything in a professional and on the other hand friendly way.
