Course Description

The Aspects of Christian Holiness pathway is specifically designed to probe deeply into the important topic of Christian holiness particularly (but not exclusively) as expressed in the Wesleyan tradition. The course work and dissertation encourage students to provide penetrating discussions on specific aspects of Christian holiness of their choosing.

The MA in Theology (Aspects of Christian Holiness) and its parallel Postgraduate Diploma course both have four course units. The Postgraduate Certificate course has two course units. These course units are structured around ten two-and-a-half hour seminars. The seminars are facilitated by specialists in the appropriate disciplines. In-depth reading, seminar presentations, group discussion and preparation of written assignments are all included within the course units.

Part-Time Study

The College has developed two part-time modes of study for these degrees. For those who are close to the College, regular attendance at the college taking one course unit per semester may be the preferred method (or students may choose to take one in the January or June intensive sessions). Students could complete the course units in two years and, in the case of MA candidates, devote time to the dissertation.

For those who are not near the College, a short, concentrated period of study may be preferable. The College has arranged a two-week long period in residence for each course unit preceded by preparation, and succeeded by completion of written work. Students electing to follow this distance-learning route may take up to two course units each year, in the two-week Summer term (May/June) and/or the two-week January term. The College is also developing a range of weekend and evening options, for those whose employment does not allow study by other means.

The content and assessment of the part-time mode are identical to the full-time mode.

Entry Requirements

Applicants would normally hold an honours degree in a relevant subject

Candidates for the Master of Arts degree must normally have a good honours degree in a relevant subject to be admitted to the course.  Candidates for the ‘Christian Engagement with Islam’ pathway must have completed ST6330 (Islam in Contemporary Britain) or its equivalent prior to entry.

Those who do not have the formal qualifications necessary to gain entry directly on to the MA courses are able to apply to the Postgraduate Diploma or Certificate. The Diploma is identical to the MA in all aspects except that the PGDip does not require the completion of a dissertation and it does not require the same standards of achievement. The Postgraduate Certificate requires completion of TWO taught units (60 credits) including required unit(s), does not require the completion of a dissertation and it does not require the same standards of achievement. Students who wish to progress on to complete the MA may do so, provided they have performed at the required level.

Non-graduates may be admitted to the PG Certificate on the basis of academic work or a combination of academic and prior experiential learning which indicates that they have reached the level of academic standing equivalent to a graduate. Students who wish to be considered under these provisions should apply to the college for evaluation of their previous experience. In such cases, they may be accepted at the discretion of the Academic Board provided that in addition to the normal requirements of the course of study they attend such course units, prior to the commencement of the PG course, and complete such examinations as may be prescribed by the Academic Board in each case.

Applicants whose first language is not English

All teaching at the College is conducted in English, so applicants whose first language is not English need to demonstrate proficiency in English through completion of an IELTS test with acceptable scores. If you are a candidate for a postgraduate course, you will need a minimum IEL TS score of 6.5, or its equivalent, overall. You are responsible for arranging to take the appropriate test and for submitting the documentary evidence.
