Admission Requirements per Program

At Wittenberg we recognize that true disciples of Christ come from all backgrounds and that their faith is sometimes forged in the furnace of affliction. This is why a perfect academic background is not the primary qualification we are looking for, but rather proof of Christian character and true love and commitment to Christ and His gospel. However, we also want to make sure that each applicant has a good possibility to successfully finish the selected degree program, and it is for this reason that we look at each applicant with great care. Below you will find the admission requirements per program, including the ideal academic background. If you feel you meet all the non-academic requirements but lack some elements of the ideal academic background, we encourage you to contact us to see what can be done.

First, all our applicants should have a true desire to know and serve our Lord Jesus Christ, and they should whole-heartedly adhere to the following beliefs: the authority and inerrancy of Scripture, the Trinity, the full deity and humanity of Christ, the spiritual lostness of the human race, the substitutionary atonement of Christ and salvation by faith alone in Christ alone.
