Our Department offers five separate degree programmes in Protestant Theology:

• Magister Theologiae (graduation by university/church exam),
• Dual-subject Bachelor of Arts
• Single-subject Master’s
• Dual-subject Master’s
• Master of Education

The range of courses offered by the Department includes all of the key theological subjects. It is also possible to learn the ancient languages Hebrew, Greek and Latin here. We regularly provide intensive language courses in Greek and Latin, which are available in the summer months apart from the normal lecturing and teaching activities.
There are eleven professors on the teaching staff of the Department, each with their respective research assistants. Teaching is further shared by lecturers and visiting lecturers who often enhance the range of courses with their specialised subjects. Introductory sessions, language courses with their own tutorials and a circumspect course guidance service make life easier for students beginning their studies.

The active involvement of students is a crucial element of the Department’s philosophy, and we are delighted that people from all over the world with their thirst for knowledge, their curiosity and their commitment meet together here on the campus to share in shaping the life of the Ruhr University.

Our Dean of Studies Dr Christina Eichel will be happy to answer any questions you may have or to offer further advice (
