Postgraduate Diploma in Reformed Theology Union Theological College


Course info


This flexible distance postgraduate programme is research–orientated, delivered using a combination of online lectures, interactive learning materials, supervised peer–to–peer discussion and independent research.

This taught Masters allows students to gain advanced historical and theological knowledge of central Christian doctrines. The Diploma is available for those who complete the teaching modules without the dissertation.

Whether you’re studying online or on site, all of Union Theological College’s degrees are marked by strict academic standards approved by the Faculty and regulated by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA). Online study is subject to the same entry requirements as our on–campus degrees: there is no difference in the overall workload, and the qualification you get is of equal value.

The difference is simply in the way in which the course is delivered. As well as all the conventional benefits of taking your theological education to a new level, our new online programme has some particular benefits associated with it:

  • Earn a recognised UK master’s degree (or postgraduate diploma) from almost anywhere in the world (there are no residential requirements)
  • Have access to the teaching of leading theologians such as Sinclair Ferguson and Fred Sanders
  • Flexibility to study at a time and a pace that best suits your own needs
  • Learn as part of a rich and diverse online community

The platform that will deliver content and allow you to interact with faculty and students is BibleMesh. For every taught module this virtual learning environment provides video lectures, discussion forums, quizzes for self–assessment, digital copies of the textbook and the core primary text. You will be able to benefit from the Cerego app, an online tool for your desktop, tablet or mobile device that builds on the latest in cognitive science to help you learn faster and remember longer.

This programme aims to provide:

  • For a high degree of engagement, interaction and critical analysis within the field of Reformed Dogmatics
  • The knowledge and skills necessary to produce original research, with the ability to adopt a critical distance from their material and to evaluate it in a scholarly manner
  • For critical reflection on one’s own particular standpoint, and a good understanding of the methodological and hermeneutical issues that are raised
  • An appreciation of the vocation of the Christian theologian
