The programme includes modules on the subjects Old Testament, New Testament, Systematic Theology, Ecclesiology, Practical Theology and Missiology.

Students may choose to specialise in Youth Work.

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