MA in Theology and Religion
The Department of Theology and Religion offers postgraduate students the opportunity to study in a world-class research centre. A strong team of scholars is engaged here at the forefront of international research, and postgraduate students can both learn from and contribute to this dynamic research community.
The fields of research explored are diverse but sufficiently coherent to create many opportunities for and cross-disciplinary (as well as single-disciplinary) studies. The Department houses strong teams of scholars in Old Testament and Related Studies, Judaism in Antiquity, New Testament and Related Studies, Christianity in Late Antiquity, Christianity in Early Modern and Modern Europe, Systematic Theology, Philosophical Theology and the Philosophy of Religion, the Study of Religion, Film and Religion, Theology and Ethics, Theology and Science, Catholic Studies, Anglican Studies, and the Study of Spirituality
This general programme of the MA in Theology and Religion offers students a broad approach to the subject, with opportunities to undertake modules from other Department of Theology and Religion MA programmes, thereby allowing them to tailor their course as preferred.
Students of this MA are required to complete a core module in Resources, Methods and Interpretation, submit a dissertation and choose a further three elective modules.
