Description

Advertisement

This programme offers a solid grounding in the classical tradition of Christian thought, as well as helping students to address cutting-edge questions of contemporary theological significance in biblical theology, doctrine, historical theology, systematic and philosophical theologies, contextual theologies and theological ethics.

This programme is ideal for those seeking a deeper understanding of Christian doctrine, informed by an in-depth engagement with figures and texts throughout the history of the Christian tradition. It will appeal to those looking to extend their undergraduate studies in theology and related fields, those seeking professional development, those interested in furthering their knowledge of the Christian faith and its effects on society and culture, and those considering pursuing a research degree in theology.
