Theology and Mission curriculum
Emphasizing mission as a particular focus of the curriculum means an awareness of the openness and readiness of the church and Christian organisations to serve the local community and wider world, taking into account the cultural and social context and specific needs of each community.
The Theology and Mission curriculum is a three year applied higher education program that gives a bachelor's degree. The curriculum consists of 180 ECTS points, with a major emphasis on practice. The curriculum provides extensive background knowledge of theology, linking it to practical skills in the field of Christian ministry in church and society. By combining theory with practice and offering opportunities for comprehensive personal development, the students are provide with the theoretical and practical skills to work as pastors, and as professionals in fields that require theological knowledge.
The Theology and Mission program is offered in three parallel curriculums based on the student's choice of study language: Estonian (curriculum code 121657), English (121658) and Russian (121659) language.
The full English language curriculum can be seen on the Study Informational System TAHVEL.
