If after studying your Theology degree you would like to continue to broaden your knowledge of Theology, why not consider enrolling for a postgraduate degree. The Institute of Theology has a very healthy postgraduate student body working part-time and full-time towards either a taught postgraduate degree (ie, the Master of Theology or Master of Divinity), or a research degree (the Master of Philosophy or the Doctor of Philosophy). Opportunities are available in a wide number of areas. For further information please contact the Institute of Theology office.
Research Opportunities are avaliable in Theology. After successful completion of a Theology Undergraduate degree, students can proceed to take one of the Following:
Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
Master of Philosophy (MPhil)
Master of Theology (MTh)
Postgraduate Diploma in Theology (PGDipTh)
The PhD and MPhil are both Research degrees, while the MTh is a taught course where the student takes four examination papers and completes a dissertation. The dissertation is not required for the postgraduate Diploma.
A Master of Divinity (MDiv) is available to those candidates who have a primary degree in a subject other than Theology and who wish to pursue a more vocational course. Entry to this course is through the successful completion of the Graduate Diploma in Theology.
The Graduate Diploma in Theology is available to those with a 2.i honours degree in a subject other than Theology/Divinity and may be taken by those who wish to pursue the MTh or the MDiv, or for those who have an interest in Theology but who do not want to move onto a Master's programme of study.
All of these degrees are available on a full-time or part-time basis.
