The high quality of the Faculty’s operations is based on top-level research recognised by the international academic community, high-quality research-based teaching, as well as expertise that serves various social actors, such as churches, the school system, the public sector, NGOs and business. The Faculty’s teachers and researchers engage in national and international expert duties that serve society and actively participate in social debate.

All former students and employees of the Faculty of Theology are alumni of the University of Helsinki. The goal of alumni activities is to promote dialogue between alumni, University teachers, researchers and students, as well as other social actors. The alumni are an important link between the University and employers, since interaction between education and work is an important part of learning.
