MA in Pentecostal-Charismatic Theology

A three-year part-time master’s degree program with six/seven modules per year and a final thesis which is obligatory. This degree is offered in conjunction with Lee University, USA, as a postgraduate training program using an in-service model. It requires a bachelor degree (180 ECTS) and at least a year of practical experience working in the subject area, e.g. church ministry (30 ECTS). This degree is offered by part-time study only, requiring attendance on campus at ETS for the intensive study modules; the program consists of 90 ECTS making a total of 300 ECTS (Bachelor, practical ministry and postgraduate study), which leads to the same level of qualification and eligibility as the consecutive Master degree.

Admission to the Program

Students must possess a Bachelor degree (180 ECTS). Since the study concept is postgraduate training it requires at least one year of practical experience working in the area of study, e.g. church ministry. This has to be confirmed in writing by a On-site Mentor or Supervisor and counts for 30 ECTS. This gives the student the same entrance level as the consecutive entry into Masters study, which leads to the same level of qualification and eligibility. German law makes provision in certain cases that students may engage in postgraduate training by completing an entrance examination rather than possessing a bachelor degree.

Special entry requirements:

For the Pentecostal-Charismatic Theology, students with a bachelor degree in another study area are required to complete four Modules as a propaedeuticum, normally NT Greek I & II, Systematic Theology and Church History.
