About the programmes
Theology and Religious Studies are ever relevant in a world where religious belief is a driving force behind world events. Anyone operating internationally requires some understanding of the importance of religion and its cultural contexts.
Teaching methods include lectures, seminars and personal tutorials, practical sessions, guest speakers. This is all arranged in correlation with lectures/professors. You will also spend a significant amount of time in doing personal study.
Lectures are given in Bosnian/ Croatian/Serbian while some can be performed in English or Arabic. You have to check with the Faculty coordinator for the opportunity to follow lectures in foreign language.
Assessment is by courseware, classroom tests and examinations. Group learning, teamwork, individual work and communication skills are assessed through design group studies and reports as well as presentations. Practical work is also a part of the examinations. Based on the experiences of exchange students, there were no problems with arranging exams in different languages.
