Postgraduate Courses

These days more and more people are enrolling on postgraduate courses. Recognised postgraduate qualifications reflect advanced professional training or specialist knowledge and ability. At Missio Dei, we are committed, not only to the next generation of Christian leaders, but also to the support of those currently involved in Christian leadership; and we hope our postgraduate programmes might figure as part of your continuing professional development: building and refreshing skills, offering new insights, and discussing, researching and evaluating new ideas.

We offer the following postgraduate programmes:

MASTERS PROGRAMME

MA in Practical Theology

MA in Biblical Studies

Our MA programmes all require the completion of five 20-credit taught modules – usually examined by an essay of 4,500-5000 words – and an 80-credit Dissertation of 18,000 words. All students study a compulsory Research Methods, Perspectives and Resources module, and four others. Modules for the MA in Biblical Studies and the MA in Practical Theology are delivered in intensive teaching blocks in September and January. The usual mode of study is part-time: completing the five taught modules and the Dissertation over two years, though it can be done full-time in one year (September to September).

Application deadlines:

MA in Biblical Studies – Friday 6th August 2021

MA in Practical Theology – Friday 6th August 2021

Admission Requirements

All of our MA programmes have two main entry routes.

The first route is with a recognised Bachelor’s degree in Theology or a theology- related subject. We would normally expect applicants to have achieved second-class honours or above.

The alternative route is for those without formal qualifications, but who have at least two years senior leadership experience in a church or mission context. Those admitted via the alternative route will be required to submit an essay to demonstrate suitability for the programme. The MA in Biblical Studies also requires a level of competence in one or more biblical language. Tuition in Greek or Hebrew as preparation for the MA in Biblical Studies is available. Please contact us for more details.

 

Which MA?

The MA in Practical Theology offers a wide range of modules – including biblical studies, studies in Pentecostal history and theology, and studies focusing on mission. It is particularly suitable for those who want to add to and develop their knowledge and skills in practical areas of theology, whilst also giving the opportunity for more academic study.  For more information about the MA in Practical Theology, including module options, please click on the MA Practical Theology Chester Programme Specification Link below.  Please note that module options are subject to change.

The MA in Biblical Studies gives students the opportunity to engage with Old and New Testament texts, and issues of biblical interpretation. It will appeal to those who want to add to and to develop their exegetical, hermeneutical and theological skills; and provides an ideal introduction to advanced biblical studies for those hoping to go on to doctoral studies.
