Course summary

Christian Theology asks the big questions of faith: Who is God? How does God speak in history and among people today? Mission directs us to the world around us, asking us to consider how God’s desire to reach all people informs the way we understand our purpose. And Practice calls us to look at everyday experiences in our vocation, community, and family, reflecting on who we are and what we do as followers of Jesus. In this course, these three strands of academic study unite into the single chord of a transformative experience. Graduates from our programme know how to frame questions and pursue answers in practical, faithful ways. They understand the needs of the world around them, and they are equipped to be effective and reflective Christian practitioners in a variety of professions and contexts. Schedule by year of study During the first year of study, the objective is to establish a firm foundation through the study of the Bible, Christian Theology and church history. With a constant eye on practice, we’ll equip you with the tools, knowledge and skills you’ll need to effectively study the Scriptures and to explain their meaning to others. And you’ll learn how to see your own beliefs and practices in the context of the church’s 2000 year history. In the second year of study, your learning in scripture, theology and mission becomes more deeply engaged with Christian practice. As you participate in two professional placements (long and short), you’ll have the opportunity to develop your skills and understanding in real-life settings. Under the supervision of an experienced mentor you’ll grow in your understanding of what it means to be an effective, reflective, and ethical leader. During this second year you will also deepen your knowledge of mission, worship, and a range of other important topics and questions. After two years, you will have the option of exiting with an FdA (foundation degree), or you may choose to study for a further year to gain a BTh honours (Bachelor of Theology degree) in Theology, Mission and Practice. During this final year, you’ll fine tune your skills as a pastoral worker, writer, researcher, and theologian. Modules explore topics such as world Christianity, pastoral care, Christian education and Christian doctrine in practice. And in your Final Year Project, you’ll have the opportunity to draw upon your learning as you carry out an in-depth exploration of a subject about which you are especially passionate.
