The article is devoted to the researching of normative-legal regulation, analyses of the theoretical, methodological and substantial part, as well as future development of theology in a secular Higher School in the post-Soviet space. On the base of the historical review, the author has concluded, that the tradition of higher theological education in former USSR Republics is absent. This fact can explain existing problems connected with legalization of theology in scientifically educational space mainly in Russia and Ukraine. Recent years’ positive trend in the solving of this problem indicates that theology as an academic discipline has a great potential and perspectives for its advancement. It is especially topical for Ukraine, where the necessary normative-legal foundation for studying theology in a secular Higher School on all educational levels, including the preparation and thesis defence, has been already done.
