About the Course

The Regents MA in Applied Theology is designed to develop your ability to creatively engage with the problems you encounter in your mission and ministry. The modules seek to foster a depth of biblical insight with (self-) critical theological reflection on a wide variety of relevant topics, challenging your preconceptions, and constructively resourcing your independent and original contributions to the issues explored. The fundamental premise behind our postgraduate programmes is that faith and critical reflection belong together. When faith seeks understanding, the results should include a more coherent, creative application of the Gospel and its life, transforming those implications into the Church, the World and the workplace.

The MA modules cover five significant areas of Applied Theological study, with two modules currently available within each category. The categories include: Biblical Theology, Pentecostal Studies, Mission and Discipleship, Christian Leadership, and Chaplaincy.

The opening module Thinking Theologically introduces you to the skills required for engaging in theological study, allowing you to develop your skill through exploring a topic related to your area of interest. The final dissertation also allows you to investigate a topic relevant to your interests or professional goals. Modules are taught by both the in-house and adjunct faculty, who deliver specialist subject expertise whilst supporting you to become an innovative and independent learner.
