The Theological Study Year in Rome offers Protestant theology students the opportunity to study theology at the Protestant Waldensian Faculty and the Pontifical Colleges in Rome after the intermediate examination.

It is offered every year and lasts 10 months. It is oriented to the semester times of the Roman universities: It starts in September and goes until June of the following year.

Rome is the fulcrum around which the history of churches and Christian archaeology revolves. Studying the Christian origins of Europe, the early days of the Jewish and Christian communities in ancient Rome at the original sites makes it particularly appealing to study theology in Rome.

The intensive study of modern Roman Catholicism and European Protestantism in its Reformed and Lutheran orientation characterizes the academic year in Rome. It offers the great opportunity to study ecumenical theology, to get to know the dialogue in the exposed city of Rome and to try it out practically in conversation with fellow students and in discussion, in lectures and seminars. In addition, the study year makes it possible to reflect on and deepen ecumenical experiences in a group of Protestant theology students of different denominations and nationalities.

So, if you are studying theology in an advanced semester, you are interested in Rome and its history and enjoy meeting Christians of different denominations and backgrounds, the study year is the right place for you.
