Course summary

About the course

The Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) 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 for the PGDip.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Theology consists of either one year of full-time study, during which students must be resident in Oxford, or two years of part-time study, during which students may be non-residential but must attend classes in Oxford once a week.

Assessment

Each of the four units is assessed by an extended essay of 7,000 words. For those modules taught by supervision you will be provided with a tutor with whom you will meet regularly to discuss your written work.

Graduate destinations

Students who leave the University of Oxford with graduate qualifications in Theology enter a variety of careers all around the world. The majority who gain the Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Theology either progress to further study, usually in the MTh in Applied Theology, or secure employment in Christian ministry. Some progress to careers such as school teachers, social workers or military officers.
