Study Program

The teacher training program consists of a theoretical component and a practical component (work placement) of 30 credits each. The theoretical component consists of six courses: four mandatory didactical courses and two teaching-related courses, which you can choose from a range of eight courses. You can follow all these courses during your Master of Theology and Religious Studies program, within the specialization Religion and Education.

If you are already working as a teacher of Protestant-Evangelical religious education, under strict conditions, you can also fulfill this practical component through in-service training, the teacher-in-training path.
