About Reformed theological faculty
The faculty offers accredited undergraduate, master's and doctoral programmes.
We offer a five-year, undivided Master's programme (Mgr.) for students enrolled in the Reformed Theology programme. Students in the Diaconate, Missiology and Social Care programme can study for a three-year bachelor's degree (Bc.) and a further two years in the Master's programme (Mgr.). The doctoral programme (PhD) is a three-year full-time programme and a four-year part-time programme. There is also the possibility of rigorous training (ThDr.), which requires a Reformed theological degree.
Since the establishment of Selye János University in 2004, the Faculty has been training theologians.
Our theology graduates, after completing their studies and obtaining a Master's degree, can apply for pastoral or other ecclesiastical service in the Reformed Christian Church in Slovakia, or in other Reformed churches abroad, or, with a university degree, can use their knowledge in other areas of society.
As in other sister institutions, we also teach biblical studies, dogmatics and ethics, church history, practical theology, religious studies and the history of philosophy. In addition, our students are required to learn a foreign language (English or German), Latin and the biblical languages (Greek and Hebrew).
In addition to the latest scientific knowledge, we draw on the intellectual heritage of the Losonc Theological Seminary (1925-1939), the John Calvin Theological Academy (1994-2004), the Faculty of Evangelization of Charles University in Prague (where most of our pastors studied between 1950 and 1990) and the Faculty of Evangelical Theology of the Komenius University in Bratislava (where some of our colleagues also studied), as well as on the pedagogical and scientific experience of the Faculty of Evangelical Theology of the Komenius University in Bratislava (where some of our colleagues also studied).
Our faculty also has good relations with Hungarian-speaking Reformed theologies in the Carpathian Basin (Budapest, Debrecen, Sárospatak, Pápa, Kolozsvár) and with Protestant theological institutes in Western Europe.
