Start academic year 2018-2019
The new academic year has recently started. A total of nine students enrolled in this year’s pre-master/minor programme and have just begun their studies. Of those who completed last year’s pre-master, six students have gone on to participate in the Master programme “Spiritual Care”. These students are the first to follow the Orthodox variant of this Master programme. Seen from a religious/cultural point of view, the work environment for a chaplain in Dutch prisons, hospitals and other (medical) care institutions will be diverse. Therefore the students will also encounter and learn about other Christian and non-Christian traditions, that offer the services of a chaplain in the Netherlands. The students in the pre-master/minor programme, however, will be concentrating mainly on their own, Orthodox traditions.
