BTh (Bachelor of Theology)

   About the programme

The BTh degree is a three-year programme, which trains students particularly as youth workers, service workers, counsellors and community workers.

   Why study this programme?

  • Teaching and training, like research, are approached scientifically with Christian reformed theology as point of departure.
  • 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. See the curriculum in the Faculty's Calendar.
  • Students may choose to specialise in Youth Work. See the curriculum for specialisation in Youth Work in our Faculty's Calendar.
  • 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.
