Study objectives

The curriculum is designed to provide fundamental knowledge of the bible and a theological foundation as a training for church ministry.

The students are confronted with fundamental biblical, systematic, historical and practical theology. The structure of the course offers a preparation for church and pastoral ministries.

The course program reflects on the fact that the peacemaking message of Jesus transmits values which are still up to date for our present society.

Program Outline – Time Commitment

The time commitment for the Certificate in Theology is 60 ECTS-Points1, which equals a time commitment of two terms.

Admission Requirements

The entry requirement is a general qualification for university and knowledge of German (at least level C1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).

Students, who do not have the qualification for university, can study at Campus Danubia as non-degree students up to a maximum of 30 ECTS.


After completion of the course, the student will receive a „Certificate in Theology“.  This degree is not accredited by the state. No academic degree will be received.

The currently offered courses are part of the one-year-program “Certificate in Theology” accredited by the ECTE. Approval by the ECTE (European Council for Theological Education) enables the graduates to continue at other evangelical universities accredited by the ECTE or another accreditation organization of the global network ICETE (International Council for Evangelical Theological Education). The ECTE stands for linking theology with development of character as well as spiritual formation.

Further studies in theology have to be clarified individually by the graduates.
