Course summary

Are you looking to use your professional, voluntary or ministerial practice as the foundation for your research? Our Practical Theology Doctorate (DPT) provides an ideal opportunity for practitioners in a wide variety of settings to work with peers from similar and different contexts to gain a practice-based and relevant research degree.

The DPT is suitable for anyone actively involved in professional or substantial voluntary work across a range of contexts and institutions, who want to examine the implications of action guiding beliefs, values, and ideologies (‘theologies’) for their practices, and vice versa. A variety of social science and other methodologies can be used to research practice and contexts.

The College of Arts and Law also has a dedicated careers and employability team who offer tailored advice and a programme of College-specific careers events.

You will be encouraged to make the most of your postgraduate experience and will have the opportunity to:

  • Receive one-to-one careers advice, including guidance on your job applications, writing your CV and improving your interview technique, whether you are looking for a career inside or outside of academia
  • Meet employers face-to-face at on-campus recruitment fairs and employer presentations
