Sport and Christian Outreach (Sports Chaplaincy) (PGCert, PGDip, MA)

Course Description

This course is designed for ordained clergy, church leaders and/or lay workers with a particular interest in the relationship between sport and spirituality, and whose occupational aspirations lie within the sports chaplaincy sector.

The Sport and Christian Outreach (Sports Chaplaincy) programme offers students a unique opportunity to understand, critique and develop practice in the realm of sport and spiritual development within chaplaincy roles and settings. The course is based upon the University of Gloucestershire’s established track record in community sports development and sport and Christian outreach. Programme provision also draws upon the international reputation of Redcliffe College (Gloucester, UK) as a provider of excellent missionary training. Modules are tailored towards Christian community work in sport and theology.

Some modules are theoretical, some teach practical skills, some are generic with other sports management areas. Both the Postgraduate Certificate and Diploma pathways include work-based, experiential modules that assess practical skills alongside knowledge, beliefs and values. The University provides support and assessment in finding and working in these placement situations.
