Biblical Studies

This programme is for students who wish to develop expertise in biblical studies, including those who want to prepare for a PhD. Its emphasis is on adding depth and breadth to expertise in biblical languages. Finely-honed language skills are central to the programme's engagement with the Bible, the world that produced it, and its later readers. It provides expert in-depth study of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament, the wider ancient Near East and Mediterranean World, and related extra-biblical literature including the Dead Sea Scrolls. You will be taught by leading academics with research interests in the Hebrew Bible, New Testament, early Judaism and early Christianity. You will benefit from weekly research seminars in biblical studies, and from our Centre for the Study of Christian Origins. This programme can be taken either as a Master of Theology (MTh) or as a Master of Science (MSc); the difference is only in the name.
