University of St Andrews
Bible and Contemporary World
Through part-time study, largely via the Internet, you join with others from across the world in relating the Christian tradition to a host of aspects of life. From guided reading, lectures and online discussions you gain an understanding of how culture shapes, and has been shaped by, Christian belief, practice and theology. You become critically aware of disputes, how these are addressed in scholarly literature, and learn how to develop your own judgements on matters of serious common concern.
Postgraduate diploma: degree from a UK university, it's equivalent, or other relevant qualification. MLitt: good degree with Honours from a UK university, or it's equivalent (USA GPA of 3.6; PR China GPA of 3.2, 2.1 class, or better).
We offer 1 module each semester from a portfolio that addresses the relationships between biblical and theological concerns, contermporary literature, and issues of national and international public policy. Some modules are thematic whilst others focus more explicitly on the biblical text.
Each module is assessed independently. Students who wish to graduate with the MLitt (Master's) qualification must also successfully complete a dissertation of 15,000 words.
Carnegie-Cameron bursaries; entrant accommodation bursary; Formula Santander postgraduate scholarship; recent graduate discount; Thomas and Margaret Roddan Trust bursary.
