Department of Social Theology & the Study of Religion


Have you set your mind to first class academic studies and research in the fields of theology and religion? Alright then, our Department of Social Theology and the Study of Religion is arguably one the best places in the world to make it happen!

Conveniently located at the heart of modern Greece, the historic city of Athens, the Department of Social Theology and the Study of Religion, part and parcel of the School of Theology of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens comes as a true starting block for a deep interdisciplinary and cross-cultural dive into established world religions as well as emerging religious movements, with an eye keen for the  culturally multifaceted and socially ever-changing worlds of the Mediterranean and the Near East.

Discover both the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and the School of the Theology, one of the founding Schools of an academic institution that emerged from Greece’s post-revolutionary era (1837) and presently makes it to the top 200 list of universities worldwide.

Ready to begin the journey? The links in this section of our webpage are meant to provide you with first-contact information about Greece and the city of Athens, and to guide you through key services of the National and Kapodistrian University you most likely have to work with before and/or during attendance of our programmes.

As good knowledge of modern Greek is essential for joining our academic enviroment, our University’s world-renowned Modern Greek Language Teaching Centre is here to the rescue by offering intuitive learning programmes for international students and researchers accredited by the European Union and the Hellenic Republic.
