The theology programme offers a full range of courses and degrees in theology, some of which are required for ordained service in the Church of Norway: B.Th., M.Th., Cand.theol., and Exam in Practical Theology and Ph. D.
The Master degree programme in theology is offered in English. It is a two-year intensive academic course of study, 120 ECTS credits. The master degree programme is designed to accommodate students from both Norway and abroad, especially from cooperating institutions and churches in developing countries in order to offer an opportunity for them to specialize academically in some theological discipline.
A major element of the master programme is the writing of a master thesis on academic terms. In the M.Th. programme the thesis work represents 30 credits. Each student works under the supervision of a tutor. The master programme also include a considerable reading and instruction programme (90 credits).
