Course summary

About the course

The MTh in Applied Theology is designed to enable theological reflection upon experience in pastoral practice in the context of ministry in the Church. It may be taken if you hold a pastoral appointment at present, or if you are able to include a period of approved pastoral experience in your course of study on the MTh.

The MTh is divided into two parts. Part I is the first year of taught study during which full-time students must be resident in Oxford and part-time students must attend classes in Oxford once a week. The MTh may be taken either full-time (residential) in two years, or part-time in three or four years. You may transfer from full-time to part-time after the first year.

Assessment

In addition to a dissertation of up to 20,000 words on an agreed aspect of applied theology, each unit in Part I is assessed by an extended essay of 7,000 words.

Graduate destinations

Students who leave the University of Oxford with graduate degrees in theology enter a variety of careers all around the world. The majority who gain the MTh in Applied Theology secure employment in Christian ministry. Some students progress to doctoral study from the MTh.
