Student Profile(s)


My MLitt has been the most rewarding year of study that I have undertaken so far. St Mary’s College is a close-knit and supportive environment and offers a variety of high-quality modules. I have particularly enjoyed the structure of the Systematics programme as it focuses on theologians from the patristic, mediaeval and modern periods and still allows for the study of particular topics and doctrines. The academic staff have been excellent and encouraging, and the international and academic diversity of the other students in my course has made for engaging and challenging discussions.
