Course Content

The Bachelor’s degree programme in Christianity and Culture with a weighting of 25% offers students a specialist theological degree, with a specialism in a field of their choice (Old Testament, New Testament, church history, systematic theology, religious studies and practical theology). The Bachelor’s degree programme is largely based on cultural studies, and prepares students to enter the job market. Graduates are able to solve problems independently and have developed the methodical and practical skills required to enter employment. 

Students must demonstrate knowledge of a source language only if they select the Old Testament (Hebrew), New Testament (Greek) or church history (Latin or Greek) as a specialism. Students have the opportunity to fulfil language requirements during the Bachelor’s degree programme. 

Course Structure

The Bachelor’s degree programme in Christianity and Culture with a weighting of 25% consists of three modules. As part of the basic module, students attend a preparatory seminar in which they acquire fundamental knowledge of methodical and academic aspects of their chosen specialism. They are able to apply this knowledge during the subsequent lecture-free period when they complete a written paper.  

In the advanced module, the skills acquired in the basic module are applied to examples discussed in a main seminar, whilst knowledge is furthered in an overarching lecture in the relevant subject area.  

The subsequent specialised module gives students the opportunity to attend selected lectures and seminars in the Faculty of Theology. The courses chosen should be of relevance to their specialism and to other areas of theology.
