Information for first-year students

Creation of a timetable

A timetable programme developed by the Central Student Advisory Service helps you plan your studies:

Here you select your degree programme with both subjects and are guided to your examination regulations (subject-specific part) and your study plan. Finally, you will be taken to our institute's list of courses, including the modules and module descriptions. You can register for the courses via Stud.IP.

Examination regulations (subject-specific part)

The so-called "subject-specific annex for the subject Protestant Theology and Religious Education" is the subject-related part of the examination regulations. Among other things, it provides you with information on the modules of your degree programme. The basic modules (the119-the159) are compulsory modules of the basic curriculum, the advanced modules (the219-the269) are partly compulsory and partly elective modules of the advanced curriculum. The elective options for the modules are also described in the subject-specific appendix.

In the119 and the149 modules, the subject areas Old Testament and New Testament must be taken (those who study Old Testament in the119 module study New Testament in the149 module and vice versa). The same applies to the219 and the229 modules. The Old Testament and New Testament courses in these modules each form a unit. Credit points for courses can only be acquired within the subject-related courses, i.e. within a subject area (Old or New Testament).

As a rule, each module contains 2 courses and is concluded with 1 module examination. The respective module supervisor determines the type of courses and the examination on the basis of the specifications in the subject-specific appendix and specifies them in his/her module description. This is attached to each module in the course catalogue and in Stud.IP.

Module description

The module descriptions provide essential information on the modules, for example the competence objectives, the content and workload, the form of teaching and examination as well as the persons responsible for the module and those authorised to examine it. You will find the module descriptions as an icon in front of the module titles in the course catalogue. Please first select the degree programme and then the category "Subject" for the subject modules. The module descriptions of a degree programme can also be exported as a PDF module handbook.

Study plan

The study plan gives you a recommendation for the module allocation for the respective semester. The diagram cannot be implemented exactly for your course of study in every case. Due to possible course overlaps, you may, for example, have to bring one module forward or study another later. However, you should complete the basic modules before the advanced modules and take the119 module „Introducing biblical studies” at the beginning of your studies.

Ancient languages

Information on the requirements in the field of Ancient Languages and on the language courses offered can be found here.

Orientation internship

You carry out your orientation internship in the 2nd semester (summer semester) in one of your two subjects. Students with the study objective M.Ed. SoPäd and M.Ed. WiPäd take their internship in the 90 CP subject. In the subject of Protestant Theology and Religious Education, the orientation internship takes place as a congregational internship. It aims to provide insights into life in a church congregation/religious community from a professional perspective and to perceive the job profile of a pastor as well as places where religion is lived. In order to take the orientation internship at our institute, please register for the accompanying course "Orientierungspraktikum" by Ariane Dihle, who is also your contact person for all questions regarding the orientation internship.

For students without a teaching degree, there are various possible combinations in the area of internships (see the overview of the possible internship module variants in Annex 3 to the Bachelor's Examination Regulations: General Regulations for the Professionalisation Area incl. the internship modules). Ariane Dihle is your contact person for questions regarding extracurricular internships.

For questions regarding your school internships, please contact the Didactic Centre (DiZ).

Student Council Protestant Theology

The "Fachschaft Evangelische Theologie und Religionspädagogik" (Protestant Theology and Religious Education Student Council) offers its own event in Stud.IP, where you can also ask questions about timetabling, examination regulations, etc. in the forums. Please register for the event "Fachschaft Ev. Theologie".
