We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Theology examine fundamental questions to do with Christian faith, revelation and grace, attempting to deepen postgraduate students’ understanding of the nature of the divine.
Related specialisms include Religious Studies, Biblical Studies and Christian Theology. Programmes award a few different kinds of Masters, including the Master of Arts (MA), Master of Theology (MTh), Master of Letters (MLitt) and Master of Philosophy (MPhil).
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.
