Course summary

The MTh programme can be finished in 12 months of full-time study, or 24 months of part-time study, with completed theses assessed by viva voce examination. Distance-based students are expected to come to campus at least once a year for our annual postgraduate conference (normally held at the end of June), or more frequently at the discretion of their supervisor. Most of the research projects which are supervised fall within biblical studies (including hermeneutics); church history; pastoral and practical theology; doctrine and mission studies. The nature of the thesis is defined by the student’s research proposal and is written under the supervision of a relevant faculty member.

Assessment method

The programme involves writing a 40,000 word thesis and does not include mandatory course attendance. The completed thesis is assessed by viva voce examination.
