Course Description

The BA in Theology is designed for those called to serve churches, missions, schools and the community at large. The programme is academically rigorous and enables you to gain a deeper understanding of Scripture and its relevance to you, to the church and to the world.

The programme addresses our changing cultural and intellectual climate and how the Christian faith relates incisively, relevantly and practically to society. You will also have the privilege of studying alongside and interacting with students and staff from diverse backgrounds and denominations, which enriches the whole study programme. In addition, you will experience personal spiritual growth through the taught programmes, and also through the community and extracurricular activities organised by the student body.

Whether you study on campus in London or remotely online, you will take the same modules, meet the same outcomes, undertake the same assessments, benefit from quality teaching and tutoring provision and graduate with the same degree.

All undergraduate Theology students can study the same programme on campus, online or in any blended combination of the two delivery modes.
