Around half of the modules in our 8-semester integrative degree course focus on social work matters. One quarter are special theological modules, and the last quarter concerns both disciplines at the same time. In each module, attention is paid to bringing in the perspective of the other field, so that theology and social work can mutually fertilise each other. There are also practical elements.
Students of the B.A. in Practical Theology and Social Work should respect the theological profile of the Evangelische Hochschule TABOR and be open to the community of everyday university life. Practical experience in Christian community work or a Christian social project is a further requirement. Applicants should be able to provide evidence of a placement of at least 12 weeks' duration. This placement can also be completed as a long-term placement by working for at least one year in one or more community groups or on a Christian social project. There is no numerus clausus restriction on admissions.
