Faculty of Theology

The UFS Faculty of Theology was inaugurated in 1980. As the youngest of the faculties at the UFS, it has grown and firmly established itself on many levels in a relatively short period of time. The Faculty remains the only institution in central South Africa that offers fully fledged, all inclusive theological education. Postgraduate students constitute a significant strength of the Faculty with representation from all over the world, including Africa, Europe, Asia and the USA. Sixty percent of the total number of students at the Faculty are postgraduate students.

Currently the Faculty offers training in all theological disciplines, from undergraduate to PhD level. The postgraduate offering includes various options in Master’s degrees and Doctoral programmes, encouraging students to specialise in the field of their particular interest.

The Faculty embraces values that encourage cultural, gender and ethnic inclusivity, promote academic and intellectual excellence and innovation and support spiritual and ethic integrity. It also strives to establish a sense of community and hospitality within all the spheres of Faculty activity.

The UFS Faculty of Theology delivers a unique national and international contribution to the development of the church, society and the academic theological environment. This is achieved through quality theological education and specialist research based on a classical theological teaching and research framework.
