Education

Our school offers two courses of study, a three-year Bachelor (B.A.) program in theology and a consecutive two-year Master (M.A.) program in theology.

Inasmuch as these degrees are internationally recognized, additional studies at other institutions of higher learning can be easily pursued. The curricula consist of teaching modules based on the classical theological disciplines Biblical Languages, Old Testament Studies, New Testament Studies, Church History, Systematic Theology, and Practical Theology.

The B.A. program provides an opportunity for the acquisition of basic theological skills for various fields of ministry within church and society. The M.A. program encompasses advanced studies in all theological disciplines with a special emphasis on Methodism and Practical Theology, and a focus on preparation for pastoral ministry.

In both courses of study (B.A. and M.A.) RST offers classes in the areas of psychology, pedagogy, philosophy, sociology and rhetoric. National and international co-operations with other universities (among them the University of Tuebingen with the largest theological library in Germany only ten miles away) give students the opportunity for supplementary studies in specific fields of interest.

Additional studies

Besides full-time studies in the B.A. and M.A. program we also offer part-time study programs for international students in various forms. 

International students can approach us by taking their own initiative, or they can partake in existing exchange-program that Reutlingen School of Theology maintains in all parts of the World.

For the ministry within the worldwide United Methodist Church we offer indivually shaped study programs.
