Student Profile(s)

Alan Hooker

I had recently completed my undergraduate degree in theology, and taking a Masters in Biblical Studies allowed me to focus on those areas of my undergraduate course which I found interesting.

For me, it’s about interacting with a range of outlooks. The course gives you ample opportunities to express your opinions through lectures, seminars and essays, and for me the enjoyment is in having your points of view taken seriously by people who are scholars in your field.

One of the main reasons for studying at Exeter was the high level of student satisfaction that it constantly receives. Moreover, 85 per cent of the Theology department’s research is considered of international quality, and the department always ranks highly in the Times’ university guide. Since I wish to get involved in academia in the future, these aspects of the department gave me the impetus to study here. If that isn’t enough, Dr Stavrakopoulou’s recent TV appearance on Bible’s Buried Secrets certainly gives the department its celebrity endorsement.
