Course Aims

The Postgraduate Certificate in Theology is a postgraduate qualification which engages in critical theological reflection upon professional practice. It is available in four different Pathways:

  • Practical Theology
  • Biblical Studies
  • Christian Doctrine
  • Church History

It is expected that most of the students undertaking the course will be involved in some kind of ministry, whether on a full- or part-time basis. It is equally available and relevant to laity and clergy alike.

The formal aim of the course is to improve the competence of practitioners so they can make a better contribution within their ministry.

It also provides an opportunity for exploring present and future training and educational needs within professional development.

Special Features
  • Facilitates a flexible programme of study geared towards the individual student
  • Draws on internationally-recognised expertise in Christianity which is sensitive to current issues in the public eye
  • Small student-focussed tutorials rather than formal lectures
  • Provides a subject-specific introduction to postgraduate study skills
  • Enables professional development needs for reflective learning.
