This programme is studied on campus.
A two year, part-time degree programme in Practical Theology, the MTh in Ministry Studies combines an intellectually challenging and practically significant introduction to the nature of Christian ministry in a changing, challenging and complex social and cultural environment.
This programme provides students with the option of starting their studies either in September or January and has been carefully created so that it is accessible to those who are already engaged in either full-time or part-time, ordained or lay Christian ministry. It is built around four one-week intensive modules held in September and January that will be delivered at Aberdeen University over a two year period. In addition to on-campus courses, we also offer online teaching and seminars.
Another unique aspect of this programme is that there are various exits points, leading to different qualifications:
- Four courses and a dissertation leads to the MTh (180 credits).
- Four courses leads to the Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) (120 credits).
- Two courses leads to the Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert) (60 credits).
Students may also attend individual courses that can be accumulated towards either the Masters degree, the Diploma, or the Certificate over an extended period of up to four years.
Since this is a part-time programme, students who require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK are unable to apply. However, we offer other full-time masters programmes which may be of interest. Please see the bottom of the page for related PGT programmes.
