Admission to this course is at graduate level. Applicants will normally hold a good honors degree (minimum 2.1) in theology from a recognized university. Applicants whose degree is in a different but relevant discipline, such as philosophy, history or religious education, will be considered on a case by case basis. Exceptional cases where applicants do not fully meet the above criteria but make a reasonable case for admissions otherwise will be considered by the Dean of Graduate Studies.
From delving into Scripture and reading the great theologians/philosophers to exploring Glendalough and debating the modern challenges at the intersection of theology, church and society, the MPhil offers an excellent range of modules. The diversity of students and expertise of staff also contributed greatly to my enjoyment of the course. Based on my experience, I highly recommend the MPhil in Christian Theology at Loyola Institute.
