All degree programs at FAU accredited for another eight years

01. Mar. 2024

In 2023, the degree programs at Friedensau Adventist University underwent the quality control process required at regular intervals to maintain state accreditation. This process was accompanied by the accreditation agency EVALAG, which evaluated the degree programs of both faculties with two interdisciplinary expert commissions. The content of the courses, the available resources and the practical implementation of the study program were reviewed. Part of such an evaluation process is also an on-site visit by the expert group lasting several days, during which discussions are held with teaching staff, students and university management.
All existing degree programs at Friedensau Adventist University were reaccredited without any conditions. The two newer degree programs M.A. Development Studies online (Social Sciences) and M.A. Pastoral Ministries (Theology) were successfully accredited for the first time. The concept for the English-language Bachelor's degree course in International Social Work, which is currently being developed and will not be available until fall 2024, was successfully accredited.
On February, 28, 2024, the Accreditation Council Foundation submitted the accreditation certificates, which are valid for eight years. The Rector Prof. Dr. Roland E. Fischer congratulated colleagues from both faculties on the successful completion of the accreditation procedure. The positive result confirms the continuous work that the staff invest in updating and further developing the courses on offer.
