This master is aimed at theologians, professionals, those who have a leading social function, leaders of organisations, and those who are active in a political and public context, as well as at policymakers and thinkers about identity.
The master “Identity, Ethics, and Society” offers a thorough theological reflection on your Christian identity and responsibility in relation to contemporary culture and society, because reflection on your own identity is essential in professional practices.
Before the 1st of June
Master Theology – General
Ad de Bruijne, Theo Boer,
In our society, Christians are challenged more and more to show their own ‘identity’. That happens in the political and public debate, in the context of organisations which do or do not have an own identity, and in professional practices. This master programme gives insight in the public dimension of being-a-Christian and in the social reality in which we live. The graduate is, with the help of this master, able to participate in social organisations or lead social organisations in an effective, recognisable, touting, and cooperative manner. This master can also prepare for further research.
In the general modules the acquainting with and the reflection on a reformed ‘worldview’ are the central modules. They are also about the theme of ‘Christian public responsibility’.
The modules are aimed at practices and are formed from a choice-menu which has two parallel modules.
Module 1: Hermeneutics and context. Basic questions with regards to the treatment of the Bible.
Module 2: Social and professional acting in the light of a Christian philosophy and worldview. With regards to social and professional practices. Visions from philosophy and debate.
Module 3: Christian identity, plurality, and the step towards the public space of the political responsibility.
A process of your choice concerning different social fields and practices, with which every student can create an own combination of accents and so an own profile. Tuned at the question of the student to act effectively, recognisable, touting, and cooperative in professional practices.
