All of these programmes involve taught modules over the academic year, and a final 15,000-word dissertation.
The School also offers an online taught postgraduate course, which may be taken as a Postgraduate Diploma (coursework only) or an MLitt (coursework and dissertation):
- Bible and the Contemporary World - Online (PGDip/MLitt) This programme offers entry in January and August 2024 and January 2025.
The MLitt is an ideal stepping stone for doctoral studies, as well as an excellent free-standing training course for graduates, professionals, and those in church ministry.
The School also offers a two-year MPhil degree, comprising the taught components of an MLitt in its first year, and a dissertation of about 40,000 words in the second.
Most of the School's MLitt and MPhil programmes are delivered by specific institutes or subject groups within the School. You can learn more about these institutes and subject groups, including their staff and students, at their individual websites:
- Biblical Studies subject group
- Systematic and Historical Theology subject group
- Institute for Theology, Imagination and the Arts (ITIA)
- Logos Institute for Analytic and Exegetical Theology (Logos)
There are two other institutes or centres which support the School's MLitt programmes:
- The Institute for Bible, Theology and Hermeneutics supports the MLitt and PhD in Biblical Languages and Literature.
- The Centre for the Study of Religion and Politics does not offer an MLitt degree, but holds regular seminars and conferences, and offers research degrees.
