This Part-time Master’s Degree gives students the opportunity to explore the deep riches of Biblical theology, Christian History, church life, and life in the Spirit. The programme has a distinct emphasis on the relevance of theology to all spheres of life, with an optional integrative track focussing on marketplace theology or social transformation. All students will produce a substantial piece of independent research (the dissertation).

TH7930: Paul & the Spirit - Dr Ben Blackwell
TH7917: MA Research Dissertation - various faculty
The dissertation gives students the opportunity to explore their own theological interests, and if they choose, to undertake a sustained study in some aspect of social transformation or marketplace theology. Students select a dissertation topic in conjunction with tutors and will pursue guided, but largely independent, research.
In addition to two compulsory residential teaching weeks, Hub based MA students are required to attend 3 MA Teaching Saturdays throughout the year. The dates for the 2018/19 academic year are still to be confirmed.
MA Year 1
MA Year 2
Students who are on the Flexi-MA do not attend the MA teaching Saturdays, but receive recorded teaching after each Saturday event.
A Bachelor’s degree (at 2:1 or higher) or a Graduate Diploma in theology (average mark 60% or higher) or a related discipline is generally required.
Those without a theology degree may be eligible for the Post Graduate Diploma in Kingdom Theology, which equates to the MA without the dissertation element. Students who maintain a 60% or higher average may be eligible to also complete a dissertation for an MA award. Eligibility for the Post Graduate Diploma will be determined on the basis of a humanities degree, evidence of theological engagement and/or training, or relevant work experience.
Applications may be taken from EU Nationals (in addition to those students resident in the UK or Sweden) for the Flexi-MA. Please see the Flexi MA for more details.
