Biblical Studies (MA)

Course Description

MA Biblical Studies
The MA Biblical Studies provides an opportunity for advanced study of biblical texts, with an emphasis on current methodologies. You will study a range of texts from both the Old and New Testaments, and develop the critical skills to interpret those texts in the contexts of both the ancient world and modern society. The degree is likely to be of interest to teachers and to those involved in church-related ministries, as well as those who have a particular interest in the textual study of biblical literature. It can form a valuable part of ongoing education for ministers.

The programme consists of four taught modules and a dissertation:

Critical Aspects of Biblical Interpretation I (OT) concentrates on a choice of Old Testament texts in an attempt to examine critical ways in which these texts have been, and are being, read through patristic, medieval, modern and post-modern eyes. Texts will also be read through a variety of Christian and Jewish interpretative approaches.

Critical Aspects of Biblical Interpretation II (NT) focuses on both the history of interpretation and the methodologies (old and new) of the New Testament. The module covers interpretations from the earliest times in the Patristic period and will look at medieval, modern and postmodern times.
