Biblical & Pastoral Theology (MA)


Course Description

This programme is addressed primarily to those either already involved in pastoral work, including leadership positions in Christian churches and organisations, or those interested in finding future employment in this area. It is unique in that it not only offers students an opportunity to gain a thorough and systematic training in methods and approaches in Pastoral Theology, but it also familiarises them with the academic discipline of Biblical Studies, including a focused and research based study of specific biblical texts as well as a broader perspective on themes in biblical theology.

Students are expected to develop a more mature and critical approach, based on sound knowledge and scholarship, and in full awareness of the complexity and hermeneutical issues involved. At the same time, all the Biblical Studies modules include theological and pastoral perspectives. In this way students learn to understand the texts of the Old and New Testament in their historical and socio-cultural setting, are introduced to methods and approaches used in the academic study of the Bible, the tools used by biblical scholars, and the most important developments in the field of biblical scholarship, but they also gain insight into their theological significance and are better prepared to appreciate the use of the Bible in pastoral and liturgical settings.
