NEW: Master's track in Christian Education 14 June 2018

Driestar Christian University has developed a new Master’s programme in Christian Education. By completing the Master’s programme students will become a Teacher Leader. Teacher Leaders are teachers with a vision of good quality education who innovate their educational practice. Teacher Leaders work together with colleagues to innovate education and they share their innovations with others.

The track is integrated within the Learning and Innovation Master’s degree and focusses on the backgrounds and practices of education inspired and informed by the Christian faith. The Master’s content is defined by four major themes:

  1. Module 1: What is Christian education: a practical approach
  2. Module 2: Religious and moral education
  3. Module 3: Change, innovation and transformation
  4. Module 4: Social justice, diversity and tolerance
Courses will be taught by an international team of professors from around the world, including Professor David Smith (United States), Professor Trevor Cooling (United Kingdom) and Professor Bram de Muynck (the Netherlands).

Flexible modules

The course is also unique because it is a flexible course: you can follow one or more modules per year and complete the master’s course in as little as two years. Each module consists of a number of study days (blended learning), followed by two weeks of lectures in the Netherlands. From the academic year 2019-2020 it will be possible to complete the Master’s course in one year.
Please apply for Module 1 via the website.
