You’ll find undergraduate courses at NTC can open many doors – to ministry, community work or continued education. In fact, recent graduates have gone on to find roles in some fascinating settings, in Britain and abroad. To give you greater flexibility, all of our courses are modular. This means the course can form a qualification in its own right or it can be used to build credits in your ‘learning account’. These credits can then go towards an award from the college. Each course has a combination of ‘required units’ and ‘elective units’. The ‘required units’ make sure that the core elements are in place. The ‘elective units’ allow you to choose areas of particular interest from the full range of units on offer. Although all ‘required units’ are available each year, many ‘elective units’ are available on a two-year cycle. The BA (Hons) in Theology: Practical Theology is a placement-based course (year 2) with full-time and flexible part-time routes available.

Core modules include: Contexts of Mission, Practice-based Learning, Reflective Practice, Spiritual Formation, Practical and Social Theology electives, Biblical Studies and a range of Old and New Testament subjects, Christian Doctrine, Theology and Church History. A range of Practical and Social Theology electives and electives from other disciplines to choose after the first year. To graduate, candidates will need to earn a certain number of course credits.
