Summary

Programme description

Our full-time and part-time Religions and Theology MPhil programme involves substantial original research in Religions and Theology, leading to the production of a thesis (of up to 50,000 words) that constitutes a significant contribution to knowledge.

Within Religions and Theology, our research students also participate in a thriving disciplinary research culture. There are regular research seminars in Religions and Theology, Biblical Studies, and Jewish Studies.

Research students are also welcome at a wide range of seminars in other areas, for instance, in linguistics or in gender, sexuality and culture.

Religions and Theology students get the opportunity to meet and discuss with a range of major international scholars who visit to deliver seminars, public lectures (The Manson Memorial Lecture in New Testament, The Sherman Lectures in Jewish Studies, The Ferguson Lecture in Theology).

Many of our students undertake some undergraduate teaching, following appropriate training which is offered to all research students.

Funds are available for students to organise conferences and travel to attend events and undertake research.

There are opportunities to organise, participate in, and present papers at conferences led by PhD students and joint events, such as the Manchester-Durham-Sheffield PhD student conference in Biblical Studies.

Teaching and learning

The MPhil programme is based on supervised independent research. The student-supervisor relationship thus sits at the heart of this programme.

Each student has a main supervisor, a co-supervisor and an additional panel member who acts as an independent reviewer. The Religions and Theology Postgraduate Research Officer provides more general academic advice and support.

In addition to regular personal supervision, our graduate research students each have a research panel that meets a minimum of two times per year (on more occasions if necessary).

The research panel increases the breadth of expertise available to the student and widens the informational and networking opportunities accessible to them.

Career opportunities

This programme will help you to develop research skills that are valuable for a range of careers.

Many professions today require investigative skills, while some in the media spend time researching angles of events that relate to religions.

Some in the health service investigate the experiences of various cultural groups in accessing services, while others in museums, libraries and other archives require the textual and historical research skills that our courses teach.

MPhil study in Religions and Theology gives you a high level qualification for a wide range of investigative tasks. More broadly, careers in a wide range of fields are available as for all those graduating with MPhils in Humanities subjects.

Whatever employment area you choose, your studies will provide you with transferable skills, as well as enhancing your intellectual and personal development.
