      Das Ziel einer Promotion im Fach Praktische und Ökumenische Theologie und theologische Ethik ist es, im Rahmen eines fortgeschrittenen Studiums, Fähigkeiten zum theologischen Denken zu kultivieren und Kenntnisse theologischer Traditionen in ihrem ökumenischen, praktischen und theologisch-ethischen Umfang auf Expertenebene zu vertiefen. Die StudentInnen sollen lernen, die Erkenntnisse und Verfahrensweisen ihrer Disziplin sowohl in ihrem spezifischen Kontext als auch im Zusammenhang heutiger wissenschaftlicher Erkenntnisse kritisch zu reflektieren und auszulegen. Je nach Schwerpunkt des Dissertationsprojekts zielt das Promotionsstudium jeweils auf eine Spezialisierung im Fach Ökumenische Theologie oder Praktische Theologie (z.B. Homiletik, Katechetik, Liturgik, Poimenik, praktische Ekklesiologie, Hymnologie oder Missiologie), theologische Ethik oder christliche soziale Praxis (Diakonik) ab. Gleichzeitig soll aber eine entsprechend breite Perspektive und eine interdisziplinäre Orientierung bewahrt werden, die allen Teildisziplinen der Theologie zueigen ist.
