MA in Theology and Society


The role of the church in Estonian society particularly and in Europe generally has diminished over last decades. How can Christians bridge the gap between church and society? How can we communicate the Good News effectively in this new setting? These are questions we try to answer in the Master’s programm.

If you are wrestling with the same questions, we invite you to join us!
The Master’s Program is more than a study programm – it is an environment for searching and solving, innovation and inspiration. We take each learner’s context and interests very seriously!

Below you will find out more about the program. And if you have any further questions, do not hesitate to ask us


The programm is accredited by the government and is recognised by the European educational community.


  • We are seeking innovative and cooperative solutions to real-life problems arising on the border between church and society.
  • A complete course of study lasts for 3 years.
  • If we have at least 8 English-speaking students, we are willing to teach the whole programm in English. English programm will be hybrid – both in person and internet-based.
