Why study a Masters in Theology?
By studying a Masters in Theology, you’ll be getting to grips with a set of complex religious concepts involving ethics, belief and the nature of God. Some courses even give you the opportunity to learn an ancient language like Hebrew or Aramaic, adding an extra dimension to your studies.
The critical skills you’ll develop will be applicable beyond the field of religion, however: proficient critical thinkers are in demand across many sectors, including publishing, the law, government (local and central) and academia. Of course, you’ll also be well-placed to work in a religious organisation.
