Wissenschaftliche Hausarbeit
Those who would like to write a church history exam paper (Wissenschaftliche Hausarbeit) may please note for their study planning that I supervise a maximum of two papers per semester due to my full-time professional obligations in Münster.

Oral/written examinations in the context of the First State Examination
Registrations for the oral and written state examinations should be arranged well in advance, as I can only administer a limited number of examinations in the field of church history due to my full-time professional obligations in Münster. Please note that I am only available as a second examiner. Examination confirmations are only valid for a specifically agreed upon semester/examination period. If examinations are not taken in the agreed semester, it cannot be automatically assumed that the "examination entitlement" in the area of church history remains valid. 

Independent of the church history examinations, which are taken by me, the church history area can also be examined by Prof. Reese-Schnitker, Prof. Kutzer and Prof. Müllner. The respective topics/the respective literature for the church history examination are/is to be coordinated with me in advance.
