Ministry and Theology

Run in partnership with the College of the Resurrection and the Yorkshire Ministry Course. We designed this course in creative dialogue with pastoral practice. There are specific modules that meet the training needs of newly ordained clergy. You will go on a placement in the community as part of the course. This might be in a parish, a school or a chaplaincy. And you will learn the habits of critical theological reflection. You can choose modules from across the discipline or focus on one particular subject area.The course is aimed at anyone involved in Christian ministry, lay or ordained, who wants to study theological subjects in more depth.

Entry requirements

1st class or good 2.1 Honours degree; if students have an interest in training for ordination they will also attend the appropriate training and selection; applicants whose 1st language is not English require an IELTS grade of 7.0 with a minimum of 6.0 in each component, or equivalent.
