Course content

The Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies MRes degree is a research programme with some provision for taught modules. It aims to explore these multifarious movements with academic honesty, emphasising the contextual nature of Charismatic Christianity, considering the lessons such a study has for world Christianity, and enabling academic reflection on these movements.

This programme is a research degree that includes taught components. It may be followed as an end in itself, but also provides an excellent foundation for subsequent doctoral research.

The MRes comprises four components; a compulsory Research Methodology module, two optional modules, and a 20,000-word thesis.
