Top in the UK...again
We rank strongest in the UK in The Guardian University League Tables 2016 for our subject area.
The School also climbed to top place in ‘Theology and Religious Studies’ in the 2016 Complete University Guide. Leap-frogging over Durham, Oxford, Cambridge and Exeter to be top of our subject league table is, says Head of School, Mark Elliott, 'an achievement that testifies to colleagues' commitment to make the School of Divinity at St Mary’s a most stimulating environment for learning theology'.
'Surveillance, Theology and the Bible'
In January 2016 the School launches another innovative module on its graduate distance learning programme. This will give students the opportunity to develop a critical perspective on everyday surveillance - including CCTV, customer profiling, and workplace monitoring (amongst much else). It is available as a stand-alone module or as part of the MLitt / PGDip course. Applications are open until 1st November 2015. More details...
