Comments about MA in Theology - At the institution - Hull - East Yorkshire

  • Objectives
    The MA is a broadly based programme in theology and religious studies. It will suit not only theology graduates wishing to investigate topics in greater depth than than they could as undergraduates but also graduates in other disciplines who wish to take up the study of theology and religion. The programme is not primarily aimed at those who wish to be clergy, though potential clergy (of whatever denomination) will gain important background to support their clerical training. Like any other arts or humanities subject, theology and religious studies can prepare students for a wide range of possible careers. Students take six modules for the taught part of the programme (67%) and then produce a 20,000-word dissertation (33%). A Postgraduate Diploma can be gained by completing the taught part of the course without continuing with the dissertation. The programme can be studied full-time or part-time.
