An upper second-class or first class honours degree (or equivalent). This can be in any subject, though priority will be given to students with degrees in humanities and especially in theology or religious studies. Applicants with a lower second-class degree and knowledge of theology and/or religious studies may be accepted on to the programme following an interview. This includes applicants who may have a lower second-class degree in another subject area and who have evidence of having studied theology or religious studies at certificate or diploma level (for example as part of ministry training).
Months of entry
January, September, April
This is a flexible programme that allows you to study a range of subjects related to Christian theology and ministry. Although historical aspects of the Christian faith are not excluded as objects of study, the emphasis of the programme is on contemporary expressions of Christian religion and practical, rather than systematic, theology. You can study this programme if your interests are purely theoretical, but there are many opportunities to link theological study with the practice of faith and Christian ministry in particular.
The Theology & Ministry award is aimed at a wide range of students who may or may not be in Christian ministry.
