Program description

This course is ideal for those who are already working in Christian ministry and mission. It gives you the opportunity to develop your intellectual and practical expertise, while continuing to work in your local church or community.

This foundation degree is specifically designed for people who have little or no previous academic experience but who are keen to learn new ideas and skills. There is the option, upon successful completion of the FdA, to study for a further year to gain a BTh honours degree in Ministerial Theology.

All students undertake a long ministry placement for the duration of the Foundation degree. This will normally be at the student's home church where a local mentor will be appointed. Your local mentor will provide support and supervision and they will be someone who knows you and your Christian ministry. Roehampton teaching staff will also visit you in your church.

You will also have a short ministry placement in another church or ministry context, which is carefully chosen in consultation with your local mentor to ensure a rich and valuable experience. The work you do in your local church or community counts towards the credits you will need to successfully complete the course. There are also specially designed study days for evangelists, worship leaders, pastoral assistants and preachers.

You will join a large Ministerial Theology student body, ranging from foundation level to PhD, and benefit from Roehampton's historical roots as an institution with strong connections to the Church. Chapel is held regularly during term and students are encouraged to attend and participate. All of our ministry students become members of our Whitelands College and benefit from the chaplaincy facilities available there.

Teaching takes place out of working hours giving you the space to manage your other commitments. Staff have a wide range of research interests and expertise, but particular specialisms include African Christianity, Christian Education, Congregational Studies, Ecclesiology, Pentecostalism, New Testament and Transnational Churches.
