DipHE in Theology, Music & Worship (Part Time)

London School of Theology

Diploma Of Higher Education , Theology

Course Description

Theology, Music & Worship the only one of its kind in Europe. As well as a substantial core programme of theological studies it offers a wide range of music and worship modules. We consciously integrate these disciplines, allowing them to inform and interact with each other.

The programme, offered at Certificate, Diploma and Degree levels, is specifically designed for musically gifted students with training in music theory and aural skills, who are interested in taking a combined and integrated study programme in theology, music and worship.

This programme is for those who want to advance their music skills and understanding to a high level and at the same time wish to be theologically equipped. Applicants will probably have come through a formal music education route.

We are committed to equipping confident, theologically aware and spiritually attuned worship designers, facilitators, music directors and leaders of musical worship in order to serve effectively in the local church and elsewhere, and to train and release others in ministry.

We encourage breadth in worship expression, promoting diverse forms of music and corporate worship that celebrate both our rich heritage and contemporary expression. We explore and encourage the contributions of other cultures and engage with varied expressions of Christian spirituality.

The faculty members include leading thinkers and practitioners in music and worship. Their combined experience includes facilitating worship at major national and international conferences, long-term local church ministry, cross-cultural music mission, producing worship resources, and performing world- class music in both classical and contemporary contexts. This experience is combined with a rigorous approach to the integration of theological and biblical insights based on a wealth of academic study.

Entry Requirements

Those applying for the Theology, Music & Worship programme (including first-study composition students) are expected to be at a good performance level, normally equivalent to Grade 8 (or equivalent experience).

However, this is not compulsory as particular importance is attached to the interview and audition where students have the opportunity to demonstrate practical skills and general music knowledge. The completion of a music theory paper, and a Music Information Profile that gives specific details of an applicant’s musical training and/or experience will be required prior to an audition.

A standard of Grade 5 or equivalent is required in music theory. For international students, an audition-recording is acceptable should you not be able to attend an audition on campus.

In addition, students must demonstrate the ability to undertake successfully an undergraduate programme of this nature. This will normally mean two A levels plus three different GCSE passes at grade C or above (one GCSE must be English), or equivalent alternatives for students under 21.

Mature students (aged 21 and over) without these qualifications will be considered individually. If you do not meet the above entry requirements, please contact the Engagement Team who will help you to identify a suitable programme of study.
