Description Master-Programs

Are you challenged to formulate and convey biblically founded theology across cultural borders?

Our degree programs will enable you to deal with religious, dogmatic and ethical questions as well as practical missionary and congregational issues in a biblically sound and contextually relevant way. In addition to the competence to interpret the Bible contextually, this also includes the ability to sensitively perceive and interpret current cultural contexts. The courses of study ultimately serves to enable students to communicate with people who have been shaped by different cultures, whether at home or abroad.

Each study program consists of an ethos core and a concentration. The sixethos core includes six courses which lay the biblical-theological foundation which the various concentration areas build upon.

With appropriate educational background in Bible and Theology, applicants may receive advanced standing without credit for the ethos core courses.

The Modular System provides further information about the structure of the courses.

You may take your first course in any of our terms per academic year - our admission counselor will help you get started.
