“…The course offered me so many different opportunities to learn and grow in my knowledge about theology academically, as well as personally and spiritually.”Judith Hoffman, Bath Campus
“…I am a very practical person and I needed a practical course to help me in my ministry.”London BTh Student
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 Christian missional theology and explore the foundations of Christian belief, practice and missional ministry within your chosen placement or training context.
What is a typical week like?
The course is split into roughly three aspects; class time, placement and private study and you will need to spend roughly a third of your full time week on each aspect. Typically class time will be 1-2 days, placement for 13 hours a week, and 1-2 days for private study.
What will I study and how?You will study the core areas of Biblical Studies (Old and New Testament), History of Mission, Theology including Ethics, and a range of subjects depending on your chosen electives.
The course uses a blended learning approach which provides excellent support for you to be successful in your studies. 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.
You will receive course notes for every module, lectures, workshops and coaching based at one of our Regional Campuses. This will give you an experience that will prove invaluable for your first job after graduating.
