Aberdeen has trained Christian Ministers since Bishop William Elphinstone founded Kings College in 1495. The medieval campus is centered around the beautiful Kings College Campus, Chapel and it is the 5th oldest university in the UK. Bishop Elphinstone, Bishop of Aberdeen and Chancellor of Scotland wanted to train clergy for communities in the North of Scotland. The University is dedicated to the pursuit of truth and in the service of others.
Students in Practical Theology explore the interaction between Christian faith and the wider spirituality of contemporary culture, with particular concern for the challenges and opportunities this offers in the context of the life and ministry of the church, both in Scotland and internationally. The department’s strong links to both church and clinical settings, along with the University’s extensive library holdings, make Aberdeen a dynamic and rich context in which to study theology’s capacity to contribute to the transformation of individual lives and Contemporary society.
You learn by attending four one week intensive modules held in September and January that are delivered at Aberdeen University over a two year period. There are various exit points all with certification. International students can apply with a combination of further subjects to make the programme up to full time.
