Course summary

Research overview

You will research your chosen topic in consultation with your supervisors.

The PhD requires an original contribution to knowledge through writing a thesis. This thesis embodies an original contribution to knowledge either by:

  • exploration and discovery or
  • re-appraisal and critique of a fresh and distinctive nature.

Hence, an emphasis is placed on a thorough mastery of the literature of the field, usually in the original languages, as well as a creativity which grows out of interaction with a research supervisor who is producing creative work. We endorse John Henry Newman’s maxim that a university education has at its central core the creative meeting of minds.

Research areas

We have particular strengths in the following areas:

  • Theology, Philosophy, Culture and Science
  • Islamic Studies
  • Jewish Studies
  • History of Theology
  • Bible Studies
