In this second cycle study programme, students upgrade their previous education with pedagogical and didactic skills. The programme focuses on a specific area of ​​work and thinking. At the level of master's study, programme participants acquire specialized knowledge and skills that complement their basic knowledge in the field of belief and the system of religions, so that it can be used in educational practice. Most of the content and emphasis in the programme corresponds to the field of philosophy, logic, pedagogy and ethics, as it deals mainly with educational, philosophical, ethical, spiritual and other concepts of life and interpersonal relationships. The field of education and orientation in the humanities is also suitable due to the inclusion of the programme in the Faculty of Theology (also in terms of content through common subjects with other programmes).

Theology gives students all the necessary methodological and pedagogical competences (pedagogical module), as well providing knowledge from specific theological disciplines related to contemporary theological and religious issues. The study programme complements the knowledge and competences that students acquire in the second field of the double-honours study, thus developing students' abilities for interdisciplinary professional work.
