Systematic and Philosophical Theology (Distance Learning) Masters (MA)

Course content

The field of systematic and philosophical theology concerns the articulation of the meaning and implications of Christian doctrina or ‘teaching’. This doctrina includes claims relating to, for example, God, Christ, creation, salvation, the nature of the Church, human identity and ethics.

This course provides a detailed grounding in many aspects of systematic and philosophical theology. It is suitable for those who wish to prepare for a research degree, and for those who wish to undertake graduate level study in order to gain training and experience in this area.

The course director is Dr Simon Oliver, Associate Professor in Systematic and Philosophical Theology. Simon has previously taught at the Universities of Cambridge, Oxford and the University of Wales, Lampeter. He is interested in the relationship between theology and philosophy, and specialises in the Christian doctrine of creation and its implications for a critical engagement with scientific and philosophical understandings of the natural.
