About the course

'Theology is simply that part of religion that requires brains.' - G K Chesterton

Theology is primarily concerned with how we live out and understand our Christian faith. As well as teaching the theoretical aspects of the faith, our postgraduate theology programmes have always placed a special emphasis on the application of theology to specific practical situations and the preparation and formation of people for Christian ministry in a fast moving age:

'Theology has importance for the Church in every age so that it can respond to the plan of God "who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Tim 2:4). In times of great spiritual and cultural change, theology is all the more important.' (Donum Veritatis, 1)

Entry Requirements

Students should have an honours degree from a UK university in a relevant subject or equivalent. Students without such qualifications will be considered for admission if they have substantial equivalent qualifications or experience. Applications may be accepted provisionally to the MA as 'associate' or probationary students. They may transfer to the full programme if their performance during the first semester of their registration is deemed of sufficiently high quality to justify this. Although rooted in the Catholic theological tradition, the programme's tutors include those from several other Christian communities, and is open to students from all faiths or none.

Student Profile(s)

Fernanda Mee

I decided to study this course to deepen my knowledge in Theology, which I studied as an undergraduate.

I would recommend the course. The modules are flexible, but well structured and there is a good variety of themes that can be explored. It also challenges student to produce well-researched work.

I received good academic support from lecturers and programme directors. The Library staff were always helpful. There was also pastoral and spiritual support provided by the Chaplaincy team.

The Chaplaincy support is excellent with lots of opportunity for spiritual development but without being overpowering. As a Catholic student, this was a very important part of my studies.
