Course summary

The Master of Research (MRes) in Theology at Regents Theological College focuses on developing your advanced research skills within a specific theological discipline to prepare you for future work at MPhil/PhD level. The programme utilises both taught modules, and an extended dissertation to increase your methodological awareness. It deepens both your expertise and subject knowledge in relation to your chosen theological discipline, and enhances your ability for advanced critical reflection on Christian beliefs and praxis. Research proposals for the extended dissertation are welcome in relation to the following disciplines:

  • Biblical Studies (especially Biblical Theology, Hermeneutics, Reception History).
  • Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies (Theology, Spirituality, History, Praxis).
The introductory module, Thinking Theologically, introduces you to the methodological skills required for engaging in advanced theological study. These skills are practiced through exploring a topic related to your area of interest, and in writing a proposal for your dissertation. A second optional module deepens your knowledge within your chosen area of study, while the final module assigns a supervisory team to support you in the writing of an independent and innovative extended dissertation within your selected area of theological research.


Modules: Research Methodology and Skills, Theological Research Methodology, Pauline Pnematology, Practical Chaplancy Development, Christian Leadership Development, Communicating the Gospel in a Contemp.Society, Christian Self Leadership.
