In 2010 I started my degree in Evangelischer Theologie (Protestant Theology) at the Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Universität in Frankfurt am Main. Additional to the ancient Greek and classical Latin that I had learned in School, I learned biblical Hebrew during my first year at Uni.
I finished my Grundstudium (Undergraduate level) with a Zwischenprüfung in 2013 and started my Hauptstudium (Postgraduate Level) the following semester.
In 2015/2016 I took a gap year to pursue a MLitt Reformation Studies Degree at St Andrews University that I was awarded in November 2016.
I returned to Germany in the academic year 2016/17 and finished my theology degree in 2018. In May 2017 I presented my first conference paper at a conference of the Graduiertenkolleg Frankfurt am Main.
I was awarded the title Magistra Theologiae in April 2018. Even though my theology degree was interdisciplinary having included Old and New Testament studies, Systematic, Religious Science, Philosophy, Practical Theology and Church History, I had the chance to specialize in the field of Church History.
In October 2018 I started my PhD in the Department of History at the University of Birmingham. Here I am combining my expertise in Reformation studies and in Theology to research the English Reformation.
During my second year in Frankfurt I worked as a tutor for first semester students in the context of their Propädeuticum (foundation course).
Before I went abroad in 2015 I worked as a student research assistant for Dr.theol.habil. Benedikt Hensel in Old Testament Studies on his research on Judah and Samaria.
