It has approximately 41,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students and employs approximately 6,000 higher education teachers, researchers, assistants and administrative staff in 23 faculties and three arts academies. 

Faculty of Theology is one of the 5 founding members of the University of Ljubljana and builds on the 450-year-old foundation of theological studies in Slovenia. Being a humanist science, theology deals with all aspects of a human person and his relations, emphasising also his interaction with the transcending. At the Faculty of Theology, we are trying to link the rich tradition of the Judeo-Christianity with the challenges of life in the modern pluralistic society. Looking for answers to life’s existential questions, questions of interpersonal relationships, ethics, functioning of societies often voices a critical counterpoint to the predominant drives of efficacy and consumerism in modern societies.

Faculty of Theology views the human person as an integral whole and taking into account the advances of various fields leans on an interdisciplinary scientific approach and an open dialogue with the society. In addition to running two B.A., four M.A. and three Ph.D. programmes, Faculty of Theology also actively participates in various international projects from the fields of interreligious dialogue, psychology and integral care for individuals and families as well as education and formation.
