Course highlights

  • Introduces students to a new development in the field of theology, 'analytic theology', while developing skills in the critical assessment of theological doctrines in dialogue with biblical scholarship and analytic philosophy.
  • A research component allows students to apply the skills, academic principles and methods of analytic theology learned in the course to explore a key area in the contemporary debate.
  • Equips students with high-level general intellectual and theological training to allow them to enter challenging careers in research and elsewhere.

Teaching format

The MLitt in Analytic and Exegetical Theology is a one-year taught programme run by the Logos Institute in the School of Divinity. The programme is aimed at students interested in engaging central theological topics at a taught Masters level and are considering progressing to pursue doctoral research.

This is an intellectually rigorous programme which introduces students to interdisciplinary engagement with major theological themes at an advanced level. The course draws on research in biblical studies and analytic philosophy while embodying the methodological commitments and intellectual ideals that characterise analytic theology.

The MLitt comprises 120 credits of taught modules held over two semesters. During Semester 2, but with particular focus during the summer months, you will begin researching and writing the final component of the MLitt, a 15,000-word dissertation.

Teaching methods include lectures, one-to-one discussions, seminars and class presentations. Assessment will include seminar presentations, extended essays and end-of-semester written examinations. Class sizes in the School of Divinity typically range from 6 to 12 students.
