The course programme introduces you to a comprehensive study of the biblical sources of Christianity as well as its history, and its doctrinal, ethical and pastoral aspects, including its relations to economics, politics, culture and biotechnology. As a prospective student, it is recommended that you would have a good grounding for the teaching of religion at secondary school level or to exercise certain forms of pastoral ministry and community work. This course is ideal if you wish to prepare for further specialised training in Theology, or would like to relate faith to their own work, professional or social responsibilities. Coupled with the study of mathematics, you will have a more refined understanding of Theology through your capacity for analytical and critical thought. You may have the chance to demonstrate your knowledge on the subject by carrying out a research-based dissertation of your choice. Participation in Erasmus+ mobility programme is encouraged.
Applicants must satisfy the General Entry Requirements for admission, namely, the Matriculation Certificate and Secondary Education Certificate passes at Grade 5 or better in Maltese, English Language and Mathematics.

If you would like to study Theology at an undergraduate level with a subsidiary area offered by the Faculty of Theology, then this is the ideal course for you.
Theology As a theology graduate, you will be able to pursue a career as a chaplain or as a teacher. If you would like to have an academic profession and further your studies, you may enrol in one of the postgraduate courses offered by the University of Malta, or in a foreign institution abroad.
Mathematics As a mathematician, you may work in the public sector, such as in the Central Bank of Malta, Ministry for Finance, Economic Policy Department, National Statistics Office, Malta Financial Services Authority; and in the private sector such as in insurance companies, banks, financial institutions, gaming companies, and consultancy firms. You may also find employment in the academic, manufacturing, logistics or IT sectors.
The Department of Mathematics also offers postgraduate degrees, both at masters and doctoral levels (M.Sc. and Ph.D.) in Mathematics. Based on world-wide recognition of University of Malta degrees, our graduates and postgraduates have been accepted to continue their studies in a wide range of overseas institutions in Europe, the United States and elsewhere.
Students who wish to participate in an ERASMUS exchange are encouraged to do so during the first semester of the second year of the course.
