Programme Overview

The BDiv programme offers undergraduate training in church ministry, specifically church ministers.

Theoretical work is complemented by a practical, community-oriented accent on social issues like HIV/aids, poverty, violence, human dignity, ecology and justice.

The programme includes modules on the subjects Old Testament, New Testament, Systematic Theology, Ecclesiology, Practical Theology and Missiology. Some churches require students to include the two original languages of the Bible, namely Hebrew and Greek, as well as a South African language besides the mother tongue

The programme is also offered as an extended degree programme. The modules of the first year are then spread over two years.
