Catholic Theology at the University of Graz

Preparation for a wide range of career paths
Graduating from the degree study programme qualifies you for the priesthood.

PR work in a church or religious context is also a potential career path, as is working in educational institutions and (inter-)national NGOs as well as in religious and church-based cultural work.
