Bible and Theology (GradDip)
The School of Theology, Religious Studies and Islamic Studies has a long and distinguished history of teaching and research in the area of Biblical Studies and Christian Theology, both at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
The Graduate Diploma in Bible and Theology is fully distance learning. The programme comprises of six taught modules (20 credits each); the topics covered in the modules ensure that students examine a wide and inclusive range of approaches to the Bible and to historical and contemporary theological themes. Furthermore, the Graduate Diploma is designed to prepare students for admission to postgraduate studies, for example the MA in Biblical Interpretation or the MTh in Christian Theology.
The Graduate Diploma is delivered through the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and students are supported throughout their studies through regular access to their module tutors, normally by email or Skype.
We are currently in the process of developing VLE module discussion forums to ensure that students, though studying individually, feel included in the University’s wider academic and learning community.
Each application will be considered on its own merits, though students will normally be expected to hold a Bachelor’s degree in a subject other than Theology or Religious Studies. The School also welcomes applications from students with an equivalent and appropriate professional qualification or significant and relevant professional experience.
