Postgraduate Certificate Theology

Structure and modules


The information provided about the Postgraduate Certificate Theology is subject to the Postgraduate Programmes Review which we anticipate taking place early in 2022.  This is part of a standard pattern of programme review and revalidation. The revalidated postgraduate programmes will offer a broader range of elective modules, especially in the areas of doctrine and church history, and modules which are designed to integrate theological disciplines.



You must take all of:

  • One compulsory module: BD6.4 Hermeneutics, Epistemology & the Knowledge of God (30 credits)
  • Postgraduate Research Seminars (non-credit bearing). These will normally take place monthly on a weekday evening: the details will be announced at the start of the academic year
  • One elective module at 6.* (Specialist Master's) Level (30 credits)

Please note

Elective modules are offered subject to viability (based on class size) and the College reserves the right to withdraw an elective module if there is insufficient interest; not all elective modules are offered every year.  


These are the modules running in 2022/23.  This is a provisional list and is subject to change (electives and tutors). For a full list of the elective modules which are potentially available in any given year, please see the Programme Specification.
