BA (hons) Theology and Mission
Our undergraduate study programme is focused on missional and biblical theology, with practical application for your chosen placement or training context.
How The Course Works
The course combines theological and biblical study with a mission emphasis and practical work experience. You will gain an understanding of missional theology and explore the foundations of Christian belief, practice and missional ministry within your chosen placement or training context.
The Course Structure
Course content is built around four streams – Biblical Studies, Theology, Mission, and a choice of various electives.
What Will I Study And How?
You will study the core areas of Biblical Studies (Old and New Testament), History of Mission, Theology, Ethics, and a range of subjects depending on your chosen electives. Throughout the degree you will undertake study at your local campus, whilst engaging in a range of placement activities, designed to develop your skills in mission and ministry. As well as the traditional essay there is a range of assessment on the course, including presentations, sermons, research projects and placement tasks
You will receive course notes for every module, lecture, workshop and coaching based at one of our Regional Campuses. This will give you a relevant experience invaluable for your first job after graduating. All resources will be made available to you online through our Virtual Learning Environment.
Options for Study
There are several options for study, see below, with either a September or January start date. Our courses can be studied full-time, part-time, or intensively, and are available at any of our regional campuses in London, West (Bath), Midlands (Birmingham), North West (Liverpool) and North (Leeds).
The intensive programme is for those who are interested in the youth ministry elective and wish to condense their training into a shorter time frame whilst serving at their placement ministry.
A Typical Week
The course is split into roughly three aspects; class time (lectures, clusters and tutorials), placement and private study. What your week looks like will depend on whether you are studying full-time, part-time or intensively:
Full-time: typically class time is 1-2 days, placement for 13 hours a week and 1-2 days for private study.
Part-time: class time is 0.5-1 day, placement for 6.5 hours, 0.5-1 days private study.
Intensive: modules are taught during intensive study weeks at certain times during the year, placement for 13 hours a week (full-time), additional time for private study, regular contact with a local tutor.
Our undergraduate and postgraduate courses are validated by York St John University, and as a provider of Higher Education we are also monitored on a regular basis by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education, to make sure we are working to the right standards.
