Theological study and learning go back to the foundation of this university, which is the third oldest university in Scotland. The Foundation Bull, granted by Pope Alexander VI in 1495, states that one of the main purposes of the newly founded university was to provide well-educated clergy for the northern part of the Kingdom of Scotland.

Today, Divinity and Theology degrees at Aberdeen concentrate on the study of Christian faith, life and doctrine in its historical, institutional and contemporary contexts.

Students join an international community alongside leading academics carrying forward 500+ years of tradition, with the highest-quality teaching and research on all aspects of theology and ministry.
