Course content

The Biblical Interpretation programmes offered by UWTSD will enable you to explore in-depth a range of topics relating to the Bible, from both historical and contemporary perspectives.

We have a long and distinguished tradition of specialist teaching in Biblical Studies going back many decades and, today, all of our Biblical Studies staff continue to participate nationally and internationally in significant biblical research projects.

While MA students will have the option to specialise in the Old Testament or the New Testament, students on the MRes programme will undertake a thorough piece of independent research in agreement with their supervisor.

Theology and religion have been an important part of life and teaching on the Lampeter and Carmarthen campuses since the early 19th Century. The School of Theology, Religious Studies and Islamic Studies is one of the oldest of its kind in the UK and was the first of its kind in Wales. When you join one of these programmes you become a part of a long-established tradition of teaching excellence and a world-wide community of learners.

This programme is taught on campus and via online learning. Distance learning students will have access to our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and have contact with tutors via phone, email and skype.
