The curriculum consists of 5 interdisciplinary modules of 15 EC each, of which a total of 60 EC must be taken:
Module 1 and 5 are mandatory for all students. From modules 2 to 5 you choose two in which you wish to specialize. The modules are interdisciplinary, so that you are equipped to think from the perspective of multiple theological disciplines.
Personal development with regard to practical issues and theological content is also featured during the master's programme. You will be challenged to reflect and form a vision on such themes. Within the master's programme, moments of reflection are organised at which these are discussed together.
"This program is engaging, interesting and multifaceted. I find it fascinating that people from all different fields come together and practice theology together." (Andries de Jong, student master's degree in Living Reformed Theology)
The programme lasts 2 years, is part-time, and is spread over 4 periods with an average study load of nominally 20 hours per week and a total of 1680 study hours. The study hours consist of lectures, assignments and self-study.
If desired, this time frame can be deviated from and the master can be studied at a different pace.
The lectures are given online and you can attend them at a time that is convenient for you. In addition, online lectures will take place where we will talk through the material with each other.
As of September 2023, this master's is available on a part-time basis. If you want to study full-time, you can do so from September 2024 onwards.
