The purpose of doctoral studies in the field of Practical and Ecumenical Theology and Theological Ethics is for students to cultivate, in the usual way for advanced studies, their ability to think theologically and to deepen their knowledge of the theological tradition in its ecumenical, practical, and ethical dimensions on an expert level. Students learn to critically analyze and reflect on the knowledge acquired and methods used in their field and to interpret them both in their own specific contexts and in the interdisciplinary settings of contemporary scholarly knowledge. Depending on the subject of their dissertation project, their studies are focused on the relevant specialization in the field of ecumenical or practical theology (for example, homiletics, catechetics, poimenics, practical ecclesiology, hymnology, or missiology), or on theological ethics or Christian social work (diaconia). At the same time, however, they retain the appropriate breadth of vision and interdisciplinary orientation that pertains to all branches of theology. -

The study of Applied Ethics is about systematic training in critical reflection on own and others' attitudes, in recognition of hidden assumptions and prejudices and overlooked ethical issues. We can say in other words that it is about deepening understanding approach – and in this case, it is the area of humanities in a broad sense. The aim of these studies is therefore an effort to create a space for systematic scientific work that focuses on the ethical dimension of various disciplines or professions. During the studies, the adepts have to manage also the methods of scientific work and its professional presentation. -
