Course Description

The Diploma in Theology for Ministry is a graduate-entry programme designed primarily for individuals preparing for or already involved in authorised Christian ministry or service. Drawing on the BTh programme, this award integrates the rigorous academic study of theology with a focus on pastoral ministry. Candidates do not matriculate within the University.

Some graduates of the DTM decide to take higher degrees in Theology; others go into teaching or other careers. The majority, however, will have done the course with a specific view to working in authorised Christian ministries.

In addition to examined subjects, candidates who are ordinands are also required by the House to attend Life and Service, Short Intensive Courses, a five-term Parish Attachment, and an eight week Parish Placement.
