Course summary

The MRes in Biblical Interpretation offers students the opportunity to do guided research overseen by a range of experts within the field of Biblical Studies. Students will explore in depth a range of topics relating to the Bible, both from historical and contemporary perspectives.

We have a long and distinguished tradition of specialist teaching in Biblical Studies, and all our staff continues to participate nationally and internationally in significant biblical research.

Theology and Biblical Studies have been an important part of life and teaching on the Lampeter campus since the early 19th century. 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. If you join our programme, you will become a part of a world-wide community of learners benefiting from a long-established tradition of teaching excellence.

Course Overview

Students will take 60 credits of taught modules as well as undertaking a thorough piece of independent research in agreement with their supervisor. Their final dissertation will be 30,000 words.

The School of Theology, Religious Studies and Islamic Studies provides a vibrant research culture, and MRes students are encouraged to participate in research seminars.

The programme is delivered part-time through distance learning. All module content is available through the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). Students will be supported throughout their studies with 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.

We hold an annual residential graduate summer school for postgraduate students in July. Students experience a wide range of lectures and seminars as well as engaging other research students.
