Subject of theology will be taught as a separate specialty in Russian universities. Previously, only a bachelor's and master's degrees had an opportunity to receive a specialty in “Theology". In addition, the "Theology" direction is derived from Philosophy, ethics and religious studies subject to which it belonged before.

In the summer of 2013, leaders of the largest centralized religious organizations of traditional religions have addressed a letter to the country's top leadership, requesting the inclusion of theology in the list of areas of training graduate students, as well as to remove this direction from the "Philosophy, ethics and religious studies" subject.

According to “RBC daily” newspaper, the introduction of theology in the list of subjects of graduate professions does not mean the introduction of a scientific degree "candidate of theological sciences." According to the order, a graduator of "Theology " faculty will receive the qualification of " researcher, teacher - researcher ."
