Master's programme 'Living Reformed Theology’ (part-time, 60 EC, online)

About the study

Have you always wanted to do something with theology on an academic level? Then choose the master’s programme ‘Living Reformed Theology’ at Theological University of Apeldoorn! This 60 EC master's programme is currently in Dutch only, is easily accessible, contemporary, connects with your (current or intended) profession, and can be taken part-time or fast-tracked (from September 2025 also fulltime). Dive deep into the wealth of Reformed theology!

The master’s is interdisciplinary. The various theological disciplines, such as Old Testament and Practical Theology, are brought into contact with each other. But also the current or intended (professional) practice of you as a student will be advanced. The student’s learning path is the main goal. This can be a practical or more theoretical issue.

It all starts with an introductory module about the heart of Reformed theology, followed by the choice of modules: about Christian leadership, Bible reading in the 21st century, freedom, law and justice and theology and music.

To be admitted to the master's program, at least an academic bachelor is required; not necessarily a theological bachelor’s.

The Theological University of Apeldoorn is nationally and internationally known for its high-quality teaching of Reformed theology. The new master's in 'Living Reformed Theology' concentrates this education on those areas at which the TUA is best.

The richness of Reformed theology has relevancefor all aspects of life. In this master's, you will study various disciplines of Reformed theology. In addition, you become familiar with the latest trends in theological issues for your own (future) professional context. This applies especially to the module(s) in which you can specialise in this master's degree. After completing this master's you will be trained as a theologian and will be able to work in ecclesiastical practices, spiritual care, health care, education, media, and legal practices, where you will be able to bring to bear reflection on the Reformed identity. You are also equipped for further research.

"I find it extremely interesting to combine my intellectual interest with my work. You get a lot of room to apply the theological knowledge to your own field." (Geraldine van Gelder, musicologist and master's student in Living Reformed Theology)
