Master’s Programme in Ecumenical Studies (MESt)
This is an international Master’s degree offered by the Faculty of Protestant Theology in cooperation with the Centre for Religion and Society (Zentrum für Religion und Gesellschaft – ZERG) of the University of Bonn.
The MESt aims to educate students in the three major Christian traditions (Orthodoxy, Catholicism, and Protestantism), and to facilitate their engagement with the challenges and possibilities of inter-denominational dialogue and cooperation. Students are introduced to key aspects of biblical and theological studies in order to equip them with the tools necessary to make advances in the interest of ecumenism. Lectures include special attention to the insights and methodology of German theology, owing to the singular influence of German-language research on biblical and theological scholarship worldwide. Successful students will be conferred the degree of Master of Arts (M.A.).
A number of scholarships will be awarded for the academic year 2014/2015.
The deadline for application for scholarships is May 31, 2014.
The deadline for admission is May 31, 2014 for non-EU residents; July 15, 2014 for EU residents.
