Course summary

Course overview

Do you want to:

  • explore the meaning of Christian teaching?
  • investigate the implications of Christian belief?
  • delve into the relationship between Christianity and philosophy?

Systematic and philosophical theology looks at claims about:

  • God
  • creation and salvation
  • the nature of the Church
  • human identity and ethics
  • and many other ideas at the heart of Christian theology.

In particular you will examine:

  • the Christian theological tradition from the early church to the present
  • Christianity's engagement with philosophy
  • the relationship between faith and reason
  • the task of theology in the twenty-first century.

Many students are already established in their careers when they begin this degree, and undertake the programme for professional enhancement and enrichment. Others pursue it for reasons of personal interest.

It is also ideal preparation for a PhD, allowing you to develop knowledge and research skills essential to higher level study.

Most students complete this course in 2 years. Under some circumstances, you may be able to change your course duration. You will need to discuss this with your course director. Please note, if you are in receipt of a Student Finance England loan, a mid-course change may affect your payments.
