The MLitt in Systematic and Historical Theology is a one-year taught programme run by the School of Divinity.
- Trains students with an undergraduate degree in theology or a cognate discipline in a high-level engagement with Christian doctrines in their historical and systematic dimensions.
- Integrates the study of Biblical origins, primary theological texts, and contemporary scholarship.
- Balances coursework and a research component that allows the application of acquired skills to a substantial subject or question of the student’s choosing.
- Equips students for doctoral study in systematic and historical theology, or for enhanced ministry in church and society.
The programme comprises two semesters of taught modules, featuring both lectures and discussions, and a 15,000-word dissertation. Modules are assessed by a combination of essays and examination. Class sizes in the School of Divinity typically range from 6 to 12 students.
Students also attend the weekly Theology Research Seminar, and may, if they wish, enrol in language classes and attend other lectures, seminars and reading groups as appropriate. The School offers classes in Hebrew, Greek and Latin, which are open to all students.
