Course summary

The programme offers a high-quality student experience through a unique programme of study taught by a range of experts within the field of Biblical Studies, encouraging the student to explore in depth a range of topics relating to the Bible, both from historical and contemporary perspectives.

MA students will have the option to specialise in either the Hebrew Bible or the New Testament. Students on the MRes programme will undertake a thorough piece of independent research in agreement with their supervisor.

Theology and Religion have been an important part of life and teaching on the Lampeter since the early 19th century. The School of Theology, Religious Studies and Islamic Studies is one of the oldest of its kind in the UK and was the first of its kind in Wales.

When you join one of our programmes you will become a part of a long-established tradition of teaching excellence and a worldwide community of learners.

Course Overview

We have a long and distinguished tradition of specialist teaching in Biblical Studies going back many decades and, today, all our Biblical Studies staff continue to participate nationally and internationally insignificant biblical research projects.

The Faculty of Humanities and Performing Arts has a vibrant research culture, and MA students are encouraged to participate in research seminars.

The programme is delivered as a full-time and part-time programme as distance learning. All module content is available through the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and students will be supported throughout their studies through regular access to their module tutors, either one-to-one (by email, Skype, phone), in groups (using media such as Skype), or via VLE module discussion forums or wikis.

An annual residential graduate summer school is held for postgraduate students in July where students are able to experience lectures and seminars covering both issues related to generic learning and subject-specific information and to engage with a number of our research students.

Assessment

Assessment is usually based on written work in the form of long and short essays, reports, book reviews and reflective pieces.

Career Opportunities

The MA programme equips the student with a range of skills appropriate for a broad variety of posts including teaching and ministry and prepares the student to progress to MPhil/ PhD.
