The Department of Theology and Religion offers seven taught MA programmes and a Graduate Diploma in Theology and Religion. The MA programmes are:
- MA in Biblical Studies
- MA in Christian Theology
- MA in Christian Theology (Anglican Studies)
- MA in Christian Theology (Catholic Studies)
- MA in Religion and Society
- MA in Theology and Religion
- MA in Theology, Spirituality and Health
All of these are standalone qualifications, but they are also an ideal preparation for a PhD or other research degrees.
As an alternative, the Integrated PhD allows students to pursue studies similar to our MA degrees, at a more advanced level, during the first year of a four-year doctoral programme.
Each of the MA programmes involves five modules: a module in research methods; three optional modules; and a dissertation of 12–15,000 words, which is the outcome of your own research, and which contributes twice as much as any other module to your final result.
All programmes can be taken either full-time over 12 months or part-time over 24 months.
For more information about the department's MA programmes, along with complete descriptions of available modules, please see the Taught MAs Handbook below. Please contact the Director of Taught Programmes or the Postgraduate Admissions Secretary with any questions.
