Thank you for taking the time to enquire about MA
Theology & Religious Studies at York St John University. This
programme has a number of distinct strands, which makes it both
flexible and diverse. Our on-campus delivery offers two strands,
one focusing on Religion and Public Life and one focusing on
Christian Theology and Ministry. We have a team of people with a
wide expertise and a great deal of experience in delivering
postgraduate courses in this subject area. Our programme is
constantly evolving to meet the challenges of a changing world in
which understanding faith communities has never been more
We draw on a wide range of students, from mature
students to recent graduates, and offer a flexible programme to
enable you to access modules over a period of up to four years
studying on a particular strand or mixing modules across the
programme. We have now made it possible to study at York St John
University campus either full or part-time at a cost that
is very competitive within the sector.
So whatever your particular reason for wanting to
study this subject, I believe that York St John offers an ideal
programme of advanced scholarship. If you would like to find out
more, do please contact me or the Theology office at the
University. We look forward to welcoming you as one of our
qualifications do I need?
