This course of study is intended for students of bachelor’s programs who are majoring in a field at another faculty and would like to minor in an area from the field of Catholic theology. The minor field program consists of three modules: foundations of theology, area of specialization, and supplementary area. The foundations module includes introductory courses on the history of the Bible, the Church, and religion, as well as systematic theology. After passing the orientation examination (introduction to the Old Testament, introduction to the New Testament, introduction to Christian doctrine), students begin work on their chosen area of specialization: Christian philosophy of religion, fundamental theology, dogmatic theology, or moral theology. Finally, for the supplementary module students are required to take a seminar in a neighboring discipline of their area of specialization. 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. Since a course of study in theology touches on issues of literary and historical studies, art and cultural history, philosophy, the social sciences, and law, a minor in Catholic Theology can serve as an excellent complement to a variety of major fields.

Please note:
From the summer semester 2020 on 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].

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.
