Course summary

Theology is one of the broadest and most comprehensive fields of study. Though it is sometimes assumed to be a discipline reserved for clergy, in reality, theology addresses questions that are ultimately of interest to everyone. Why do we exist? What is the good life, and how can we live it? Is there a God? And if there is a God, what is God like?

Theology asks the biggest of all human questions in order to better understand our every-day lives. In a sense, then, what makes theology unique as a discipline is that it is a conversation that is intended to be about everything. And students in theology at UWTSD will have the opportunity to study everything – everything from history and philosophy to hermeneutical theory and sociology, to culture and ethics.

Course Overview

The MTh in Christian Theology allows students to explore the big questions of human existence through engagement with the teachings and traditions of the Christian church. But the programme as a whole is broad-minded and open to people of all religious persuasions.

The MTh is delivered as a full-time and part-time programme of study for distance learners. All module content is available through the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), and 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.

Assessment

The modules are assessed by a variety of assessment methods: short essays (2,500 words), longer essays (4,000-5,000 words), comparative analyses, literary reviews and appreciations, short assignments, oral assessments and one 15,000-word dissertation.

Career Opportunities

The programme has been designed to attract students interested in developing both their generic and their subject-specific skills. It offers opportunities for students who have recently graduated to move on to work at level 7 in their specialist field of study and help prepare them for careers in education, ministry and research.
