What will I learn?
The study programme offers a comprehensive overview of the central contents of the Christian faith and its formations in history and the present. In addition, the basic features of other religions, spiritualities and world views are developed. Students learn various scientific methods for analyzing texts from the Bible and tradition. This strengthens their ability to argue and judge in church and social discussions. This enables them to accompany students in their questions about faith, meaning and happiness. In addition to "Religion", a second subject must be chosen. Students deepen their pedagogical knowledge at the School of Education and in practical phases at school.
