Course Description

A message from the Head of Programme Thank you for taking the time to enquire about MA Theology & Religious Studies at York St John University. This programme has a number of distinct strands, which makes it both flexible and diverse. Our on-campus delivery offers two strands, one exploring the contemporary significance of religion and one focusing on Christian Theology & Ministry. We have a team of people with a wide expertise and a great deal of experience in delivering postgraduate courses in this subject area. Our programme is constantly evolving to meet the challenges of a changing world in which understanding faith communities has never been more important. We draw on a wide range of students, from mature students to recent graduates, and offer a flexible programme to enable you to access modules over a period of up to four years studying on a particular strand or mixing modules across the programme. We have now made it possible to study at York St John University campus either full or part-time at a cost that is about half that of the normal University MA fee. So whatever your particular reason for wanting to study this subject, I believe that York St John offers an ideal programme of advanced scholarship. If you would like to find out more after reading this leaflet, do please contact me or the Theology office at the University. We look forward to welcoming you as one of our postgraduate students. The Revd Dr Andrew Village - Head of Programme What will I study? The following list contains examples of programme modules (modules may not be available each year and new ones may be added).
