PG Certificate in Applied Theology



What will I learn?

About the Course

The Regents Postgraduate Certificate in Applied Theology provides an introduction to postgraduate study that allows you to focus immediately on modules directly relevant to your vocational and professional development. For those seeking an initial postgraduate University accredited qualification, the two year part-time study programme offers an achievable route for professional development. Whether you wish to enhance your skills and knowledge in relation to chaplaincy, Christian leadership or another of the available subject areas, the modules seek to foster depth of biblical insight and (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 module options within the PG Certificate relate to five significant areas of Applied Theological study, with two modules currently available within each category. Categories include: Biblical Theology, Pentecostal Studies, Mission and Discipleship, Christian Leadership, and Chaplaincy. One module from each of these categories is available as a study option per year. Modules are taught by a range of in-house and adjunct faculty who deliver specialist subject expertise whilst supporting you to become an innovative and independent learner.
