The PGT Programme in Mission (Masters, PG Diploma or PG Certificate), validated by the University of Manchester, is a flexible programme with a number of streams allowing a student to follow their desired subject choices within a very flexible time frame. The subject areas include Mission, Evangelism, Pioneering Ministries, Leadership, Renewal and Worship, Christian Mentoring, Wesleyan Theology, Youth and Children's Mission. An MPhil (and PhD) are also available.
With some of the foremost international experts in Christian mission, leadership, and scholarship, the MA Mission is ideal for going deeper on themes such as: pioneering mission and church planting; responses to church decline in the west; missional movements and networks; the Holy Spirit in leadership; evangelism in a digital age; church history; biblical theology; global justice; missional spirituality, literature & culture; and much more! The degree is validated by The University of Manchester, one of the most significant universities in the world.
The MA in Mission is a highly flexible programme which is normally studied full- or part-time over one to three years.* This means it is ideal both for those pursuing an academic vocation as well as for those currently involved in mission or ministry who need to juggle their studies with their church/mission commitments.
To complete the MA, students must complete any four units and then a dissertation in their final year. They can also choose to take a ‘Pathway’ with a more specified focus, or complete the course at a distance by taking the online units.
A list of taught units and study options can be found here: https://www.cliffcollege.ac.uk/students/postgraduate/ma/
All units (except those delivered online) are taught in five-day (Mon–Fri) intensive teaching blocks, enabling students from across the British Isles, Europe and beyond to participate while remaining in employment.
In some circumstances, a student may study the MA over a period up to 5 years, though advance approval is required.
