Theology (Biblical Studies) BA (Hons)




What will I learn?

Course Overview

Full-time and flexible part-time routes are available. Full-time study is for three years and up to six years part-time. This is a great pathway for those looking to develop a vocation in teaching or ministry, or those simply wanting to study biblical studies in depth.

Close to forty different nationalities are represented in the College’s diverse student body. NTC welcomes students from outside the UK, either for full courses or for Study Abroad periods, and the presence of a variety of cultures enriches the life of the whole community.

The College has been approved by UK Visa and Immigration as a sponsoring body for visa purposes, and has been reviewed and approved by the Quality Assurance Agency under the ‘educational oversight’ provision. Before the UK immigration authorities will issue a Student Visa for full-time study, they must be satisfied that students have been officially admitted and have the resources to finance their education. See more details at the UK Visas website.

Nazarene Theological College is an approved partner of The University of Manchester, delivering programmes developed by Nazarene Theological College, approved by and leading to an award of the University of Manchester.

Teaching and Learning Methods

NTC offers small class sizes, with classes ranging from 5 to 35 students. Most classes run in a weekly format, though students can take selected classes in short intensive sessions in January and May. Teaching methods include lectures, seminars and class discussions, oral presentations, group work, individual tutorials, directed reading, case studies, individual supervision, and student-led seminars.

Methods of Assessment

We try to include a wide variety of assessment methods throughout our programmes. Types of formative (non-credit bearing) assessment include class presentations, essay outlines, online forums, and group presentations, with feedback on these through individual tutorials, or written and oral feedback. Our Summative (credit-bearing) assessments include research essays, case studies, group projects, individual projects, personal reflections, book reviews, a limited number of module examinations, and a research dissertation.

Employment Outcomes

The BA (Hons) in Theology (Biblical Studies) contains much of the theoretical foundation for a professional qualification in pastoral ministry. Graduates with a good honours degree may proceed to postgraduate study in the area of biblical studies. Because of its available range of elective units which complement its breadth of theological coverage, it is also particularly useful as the foundation for a career in teaching Religious Education or related subjects. The wide range of transferable skills developed in this course ensure that graduates will find that a degree in theology is welcomed by many employers and that it is a good preparation for entry into a wide variety of professions. Recent graduates have gone on to become Pastors, Lecturers, School Teachers, and workers throughout the charity sector.
