What will I learn?

Course Overview

The core unit for this pathway is a choice of ST7665 Contemporary Missiology and Culture: Mapping the Landscape, which considers missional patterns and paradigm shifts that are shaping and informing missional theology and practice, or ST7666 Contemporary Missiology and Culture: Emerging Issues, which examines emerging issues and debates that are shaping and informing missional theology and practice in transcultural and intercultural dimensions.

Entry requirements

For international students

Candidates for the Master of Arts degree must normally have a good honours degree in a relevant subject to be admitted to the course. Candidates for the ‘Christian Engagement with Islam’ pathway must have completed ST6330 (Islam in Contemporary Britain) or its equivalent prior to entry. Those who do not have the formal qualifications necessary to gain entry directly on to the MA courses are able to apply to the Postgraduate Diploma or Certificate. The Diploma is identical to the MA in all aspects except that the PGDip does not require the completion of a dissertation and it does not require the same standards of achievement. The Postgraduate Certificate requires completion of TWO taught units (60 credits) including required unit(s), does not require the completion of a dissertation and it does not require the same standards of achievement. Students who wish to progress on to complete the MA may do so, provided they have performed at the required level. Non-graduates may be admitted to the PG Certificate on the basis of academic work or a combination of academic and prior experiential learning which indicates that they have reached the level of academic standing equivalent to a graduate. If you are a candidate for a postgraduate course, you will need a minimum IELTS score of 6.5, or its equivalent, overall.

*There may be different IELTS requirements depending on your chosen course.
