MA Pastoral Theology The MA Pastoral Theology's special quality is in integrating theory and practice, theology and experience, faith and action. For those already in the thick of practical pastoral work, it presents a framework for reading and study to bring those elements together. The MA is suitable for those in, or preparing for, ministry in the Christian churches, whether ordained or not. It is also relevant for teachers, counsellors, therapists, health care professionals or those in the legal profession.
PROGRAMME OF STUDY The programme consists of four taught modules and a dissertation:

It will introduce a range of issues in methodology for pastoral theology; ecclesiology in pastoral ecclesiology; Christian ministry; theological reflection.
Religion - Contex and Crisis addresses critical issues of the contemporary context from sociological and theological perspectives. It ‘models’ the pastoral theological approach and methodology and deepen understanding of themes of political and liberation theology and the sociology of religion.
