Theology

A masters is awarded to students who have completed postgraduate level study in a specific field of study or area of professional practice while demonstrating a high level of mastery during the process.

More than just a study of one religion, theology generally covers a variety of religious and philosophical traditions, seeking a better understanding of the divine. While it can be studied in order to enter a particular religious order, it also provides students with an understanding of people’s beliefs in general.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

MTh - Master of Theology

London School of Theology
Campus Full time Part time 1 - 2 years August 2017 United Kingdom Greater London + 1 more

The degree is aimed at those who have already completed formal theological training - they might be theology graduates, ministers, missionaries, Religious Education teachers, or business people as well as potential PhD students. [+]

Masters in Theology in Greater London in United Kingdom. Assessment: Thesis of up to 40,000 words and oral examination (viva) Who is it for? The degree is aimed at those who have already completed formal theological training - they might be theology graduates, ministers, missionaries, Religious Education teachers, or business people as well as potential PhD students. It is particularly suitable for those who cannot commit themselves to the regular structure of a taught Master’s course, or to the length of time necessary for a PhD. Summary LST offers research supervision for the MTh degree in collaboration with Middlesex University, which awards the degree. The MTh is a first research degree, combining training in research and writing skills. Candidates for this degree follow a programme of study approved by the Director of Research and write their thesis on an approved topic in one of the major theological disciplines. The thesis must be an independent contribution to knowledge by the discovery of new facts or a distinct critical survey of knowledge. It must be well argued and be appropriately presented with clarity and conciseness of expression. It is possible to transfer to either MPhil or PhD registration with the agreement of the supervisor(s) and the Director of Research. Why embark on an MTh? It is an ideal course if you want to dig deep into one particular area rather than exploring the wider variety of questions posed by the MA. The MTh can provide a chance to reflect in more depth on experience you have had in your job or ministry; and for pastors to address their congregations with necessary expertise and critical judgement. An MTh provides an excellent apprenticeship in research and research writing for those who wish to progress to a PhD programme. It is also ideal preparation for a future in teaching, writing and pastoral work. POSSIBLE AREAS OF RESEARCH The lists below give an indication of the main areas of interest among our research supervisors; follow the links to individual supervisors’ profiles to find out each one’s more specific interests. Projects that fall outside these areas will also be considered. - Old Testament - New Testament - Linguistics and biblical studies - Church history and historical theology - Systematic and philosophical theology - Applied theology and ethics - Music and Worship - Christian worship and preaching - Mission theology and history - Judaism - Islamics and Christian-Muslim relations - Gender and Sexuality - Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies RESEARCH ENTRY REQUIREMENTS Normally you should have a good Honours degree (2:1 or above for the MTh, MPhil and PhD) in a theological, biblical or related subject. If you have taken a second theological degree (e.g. a British MA in Biblical or Theological Studies) you will find yourself much better equipped for a research degree. If your degree is in some other discipline, you may be considered if you can show evidence of suitable formal theological education, such as a British DipHE. Work experience can be considered in place of qualifications in some circumstances. For a North American Master’s degree, you should have a GPA of at least 3.6 for the MTh and at least 3.8 for the MPhil. Candidates registered for the MTh or the MPhil whose work proves to be of the appropriate standard may (with the agreement of their supervisor(s) and the Director of Research) transfer of registration, to MPhil or to PhD respectively. Registration for a PhD programme: as is normal in UK universities, you will initially be registered for ‘MPhil with a view to PhD’. Formal transfer to PhD registration normally takes place when you are about a year (of full-time study) away from its completion. If English is not your first language you will need to arrange to take the British Council’s English test. We cannot confirm your place until you have produced an IELTS test report and reached a score of 7.0 (all individual elements should be 6.5 or higher) or an equivalent English language proficiency report. There are many test centres, easily sourced on the internet. Your proficiency in English will also be considered at interview. [-]
