MA IN PENTECOSTAL-CHARISMATIC THEOLOGY
WHAT IS THE MA IN PENTECOSTAL-CHARISMATIC THEOLOGY?
The Master of Arts in Pentecostal-Charismatic Theology is a three-year part-time master’s degree program with six modules per year and a final thesis which is obligatory. This degree is offered in conjunction with Lee University, USA, as a graduate-level training program using an in-service model.
IMPORTANT DETAILS ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
This degree is offered by part-time study only, requiring attendance on campus at ETS for the intensive study modules. The program consists of 14 modules (5 ECTS each) and a thesis (20 ECTS), making it a 90 ECTS MA.
IN CONJUNCTION WITH
The MA is offered jointly by Lee University and ETS. It is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (www.sacscoc.org) in the USA and, from June 2017, has been accredited by evalag (www.evalag.de) in accordance with §72a LHG BW Germany.
Graduates are eligible to study further and pursue a doctorate since Lee University is denoted as H+ by anabin (www.anabin.kmk.org) and this master's degree has German accreditation.
ADMISSION TO THE PROGRAM
Students must possess a bachelor's degree or equivalent (180 ECTS, EQF Level 6) normally in the area of theology. 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 should be fulfilled before the studies on campus begin, has to be confirmed in writing by an on-site mentor or supervisor, and is awarded 30 ECTS. This gives the student the same entrance level as the consecutive entry into master's 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's degree.
As all courses are held in English, English language proficiency of at least C1 level is required.
Special entry requirements:
For the Pentecostal-Charismatic Theology program, students with a bachelor's degree or equivalent (EQF Level 6) in another study area are required to complete four modules as a propadeutic, normally NT Greek, Systematic Theology, Hermeneutics and Church History.
A graduate with this degree could pursue a career in the following areas:
History of Doctrine II
Philosophy of Religion
Doctrine of the Holy Spirit
Theology of Prayer
Epistemology for Pentecostals
Pastoral Theology in the 21st Century
