Religious Music
Duration of studies

3 years


Brief presentation

The study program was founded in 2014, with the blessing of the Archbishop of Alba Iulia. The initiative to set it up came out of a necessity, as the wider region of Alba County did not have higher education programmes that would allow the training of professional musicians. On the other hand, the demand for specialists in the field of music has become increasingly high in recent years, amid the intensification of artistic activity at the county level through the emergence of specialized bands (brass band, orchestra) that need qualified personnel. This program has a special status in shaping the zonal and national cultural landscape, because, through its two levels – theologically and musically – it contributes to the revaluation of a historical experience in which singing, and prayer were harmoniously completed.


Qualifications and professions upon graduation

The qualifications and professions acquired after graduation are as follows: Teacher in secondary education; Teacher in high school, post-secondary education; Music reviewer; Chorister; Church singer; Conductor; Documentarian (higher education).


Main subjects studied

The undergraduate program aims to provide a multifaceted perspective on music, addressing both elements of universal musical culture and aspects related to national and local musical culture. In this sense, we could divide the studied disciplines into 3 categories. 1) Disciplines aimed at appropriating the language of universal musical culture, such as: Theory, Solfeggio, Dictation; History of music; Harmony; Counterpoint; Musical forms and analysis, Instrument theory, Reading of musical scores. The knowledge acquired in these disciplines will allow the student to correctly analyze and interpret a piece of music from a certain stylistic period. These skills can be developed at the choral group and conducting choir courses. 2) Disciplines aimed at appropriating the language of music of Byzantine tradition: Byzantine Music Theory; Byzantine musical paleography; History of Byzantine music. Once appropriated, the specific notions of this musical culture will be put into practice at the psalm group courses, as well as by participating in the services held in the faculty chapel. 3) Disciplines that deal with national and local musical traditions. Folklore is one of the great riches of our country that must be known and capitalized. After a presentation of the musical traditions specific to each folk area, students will have the opportunity to analyze the specifics of the area they come from. Those interested can opt for the courses of folk instrument (violin, accordion, double bass, etc.), having the opportunity to be part of the folk band of the Faculty of Theology.


Aspects regarding professional practice

The professional practice is carried out individually, within courses such as choral singing, piano, reading of musical scores, or in common, within different types of bands of the Faculty of Theology; choral group, psalm group, folk orchestra. Partner institution: Romanian Orthodox Archdiocese of Alba Iulia.


Possibilities for further studies (master's degree, doctorate)

The Faculty of Theology offers the possibility to continue the studies through one Master study program in Religious Music and Folklore.


Employment opportunities

The opportunities are multiple: the possibility to occupy a teaching position for the specialization Musical education within primary and secondary education; occupying a position of choir conductor; occupation of a position of church singer; member in different types of vocal (choirs, vocal groups) or instrumental (orchestras, brass band); music reviewer.

Sacred Art
Duration of studies

3 years


Brief presentation

The general objective of the study program is to train specialists in the field of sacred arts in general (granting the bachelor’s Diploma in the field of Visual Arts), and the specific objective is to initiate and train young people as specialists in mosaic and fresco, but also in order to access master's and doctoral studies in this field. As it was put together in order to obtain the authorization, the study program is structured on three years of study, respectively 180 ECTS. The completion of the studies ends with an examination consisting of two tests: a theoretical examination, summative of the acquired knowledge and a practical-applicative one.


Qualifications and professions upon graduation

The holder of the Diploma of Bachelor of Sacred Art can be employed as: Plastic artist sacred goods; Graphic designer; Painter; Artistic consultant; Organizer of fairs and exhibitions; Teacher in gymnasium education (after graduating the Psycho-Pedagogical Module); Expert reviewer of cultural settlement. The list is not exhaustive and has an exemplary character; the civil and ecclesiastical legal regulations in force may condition the occupation of certain positions by the graduation of a master's program or of some post-graduate programs.


Main subjects studied

The structure of the curriculum is six semesters with an average schooling duration of 14 weeks and a number of approximately 22-24 hours per week and a number of 60 ECTS per year. The subjects are organized hierarchically and successively so as to contribute to the good assimilation of knowledge in the field and the acquisition of new competences. In developing the curricula and the list of subjects, it was taken into account the recommendations of the Romanian Quality Assurance Agency, the teaching plans from the educational offer of other similar programs in Romania and abroad, as well as in accordance with the norms and good practices in the field. The main subjects studied are: History of Universal Art, Artistic Anatomy, Study of Drawing for Iconography, Iconography, Christian Art: Techniques and Styles, Study of Color for Iconography, History of Romanian Medieval Art, Paleo-Christian Techniques, Transposition Techniques, Applied Paleography, Erminia of Byzantine Painting, Elements of Ecclesial Architecture.


Aspects regarding professional practice

A major focus is that the students know the plasticity of the materials from which the works are made (a condition that we consider as fundamental in order to prepare future specialists), with the implicit purpose of avoiding confusions between artistic genres, for example, as well as understanding and developing each artistic quality of the chosen genre. In parallel with this dominant activity, studies of drawing, color, compositions will be carried out, including both elements of plastic language and artistic expressiveness in general and, in particular, their adoption to the specificity of the basic modules (for example, a certain drawing, color and composition for mosaic in relation to sgrafitto or to miniature, etc.). The techniques can be found in the plasticity methodologies of the materials used. The students will get used to several ways of artistic expression, applied to the characteristics of the Byzantine style, especially those regarding the mosaic technique and the technique of applying the fresco. Through such methods, we consider that the premises of "training" the artistic vocation of the students can be created, in order to express the artistic creativity in the canonical frameworks of iconography. At the same time, thanks to this chosen formation pattern, it is estimated that connections, compatibilities between different artistic materials can also appear, in order to obtain alternative plastic visions, specific to the visual expression of transcendentality, with special cultural and cultural aspects. An important component in the training of students will be the practice on the painting sites of the Diocese of Alba Iulia, which will offer students a real contact and from the source with their future professional development environment. In this regard, practice contracts have already been signed and the way of carrying out and scoring these activities has already been established. Niches on the development of practice are on the components of work in mosaic technique and fresco technique.


Possibilities for further studies (master's degree, doctorate)

The Faculty of Theology offers, from a professional and teaching point of view, the entire range of higher levels of training (bachelor, master, doctorate). The Sacred Art Program is currently authorized for operation by the bodies authorized for this purpose, namely ARACIS.
