Course summary

Our MA in Theology offers students education in the central areas of Christian theology through a balance of academic study and practical application. Why study Theology? The content of this Theology degree is geared to themes relevant to theology in contemporary society, both from a Roman Catholic perspective, and from Anglican, Reformed and Orthodox Church standpoints. This allows you to become familiar with the current situation of ecumenical activity within your own tradition, whilst opening up avenues of exploration and insight into other communities. In addition, the programme connects the theology of the Christian Church with the British and European situation, focussing on the historical development of theology in the European setting of the twenty-first century, and its impact on Britain through continental influences and the reforms of the Second Vatican Council.


Human Beings and Human Action; Dissertation; Ecclesiology in Contemporary Perspective; Systematic Theology and Contemporary Themes; Aspects of Biblical Interpretation; Catholic Social Teaching Applied.

Assessment method

A variety of different forms of assessment are employed across the programme, including essays, portfolios, case studis, article reviews, issue reports and oral presentations. In addition, in order to achieve the MA, you will be required to complete a 15,000 word dissertation, which is supported by individual supervision.
