Course content

The Theology staff at Newman have taught postgraduate students successfully for over ten years through a well-established Masters programme in Contemporary Christian Theology. Research supervision (MPhil/PhD) is offered in a number of areas, including aspects of Christian theology, biblical studies, early post-biblical Judaism, contemporary philosophical theology, the history of philosophy, feminist theology and Religious Education.
We are also able to work with those wishing to apply theological reflection to their ministry or professional practice. The recent appointment to the subject area of two visiting professors and the provision of a fully-funded PhD studentship has enabled Theology to become a rapidly expanding research area within the University.
Members of the Theology team regularly publish and present conference papers in their areas of special expertise, and all value the promotion of good relationships between staff and students and the provision of good support networks. The Newman Research Centre for the Bible and its Reception is located within the Theology subject area, providing opportunities for research students to network with scholars of international standing and to benefit from engagement with an active research culture.
