About this program

Bible and the Contemporary World MLitt

The Distance Learning MLitt in Bible and the Contemporary World is a part-time virtual learning program that connects biblical and theological studies with other disciplines in the arts, humanities and social sciences.

Bible and the Contemporary World is also offered as a full-time residential program.

The MLitt in Bible and the Contemporary World is a part-time distance learning program aimed at both lay people seeking personal development and clergy seeking continued professional development.

Admission requirements

The School of Divinity encourages applications from those who have an undergraduate degree in any subject, and recognises that in some cases this may have been attained a number of years ago and that weaker performance at that time might not always indicate an applicant’s current academic potential.

A good 2.1 Honours undergraduate degree is normally expected, but if your degree classification is lower, you should indicate more recent, perhaps informal, learning in your letter of intent. You do not need to have a degree in Theology or Biblical Studies in order to apply for a place on this program; however, all applicants will be expected to have sufficient knowledge to equip them for postgraduate level of study in this area.

For more information about admission requirements, please visit the university website.
