Course Description

Our MA in Theology offers students education in the central areas of Christian theology through a balance of academic study and practical application.

The content of this Theology degree is geared to themes relevant to theology in contemporary society, both from a Roman Catholic perspective, and from Anglican, Reformed and Orthodox Church standpoints. This allows you to become familiar with the current situation of ecumenical activity within your own tradition, whilst opening up avenues of exploration and insight into other communities.

In addition, the programme connects the theology of the Christian Church with the British and European situation, focussing on the historical development of theology in the European setting of the twenty-first century, and its impact on Britain through continental influences and the reforms of the Second Vatican Council.

Founded in 1850, St Mary's has a long and distinguished history as a Catholic institution. This programme aims to encourage a high standard of teaching, learning and scholarship in order to provide a stimulating education within the fields of theological study.

Our programme is suitable for teachers of Religious Education at primary and secondary level, those engaged in Christian ministry and priesthood from different ecclesial backgrounds, and those who want to enrich their understanding of the ongoing theological tradition which accompanies Christian faith and life.

The degree is also a good grounding for those (whether from a different faith perspective or none) who engage in work in the charitable and social sectors, and non-governmental organisations.

  • Opportunity for either full-time (one year) or part-time study (two to three years)
  • Provides excellent preparation for doctoral level study
  • Multi-disciplinary teaching team
  • Excellent student support
  • Taught on our historic Strawberry Hill campus, within easy reach of Central London
