Church History (Distance Learning) Masters (MA)


Course Description

Whether you see yourself as primarily interested in historical theology, or in the social history of Christianity, or are simply not sure what your focus will be, this degree will have something to offer you. The academics who have created it happily embrace various different perspectives, and have no particular orthodoxy of methodological approach. They are endeavouring to use the vast richness of the historical resources of the Christian tradition to explore the interface between history, culture and theology, and we will do our best to help you to do the same.

This course allows you either to take a range of modules from different periods from the earliest Christian history to the present, or to specialise in either the early and medieval periods, or the post-Reformation era. It is suitable for those who wish to prepare for a research degree, and for those who wish to undertake graduate level study to enhance and deepen their understanding of the Church’s past.

The course director is Dr Frances Knight, Associate Professor in the History of Modern Christianity. Frances has previously taught at the University of Cambridge, the Open University and the University of Wales, Lampeter. She specialises in the history of Christianity in England and Wales since 1800.
