About the course

Run in partnership with the College of the Resurrection and the Yorkshire Ministry Course.

We designed this course in creative dialogue with pastoral practice. There are specific modules that meet the training needs of newly ordained clergy.

You'll go on a placement in the community as part of the course. This might be in a parish, a school or a chaplaincy. And you'll learn the habits of critical theological reflection.

You can choose modules from across the discipline or focus on one particular subject area.


The course is aimed at anyone involved in Christian ministry, lay or ordained, who wants to study theological subjects in more depth.
