ThD - Doctor of Theology
Applied / Practical Theology
The DTh is a professional doctorate programme in practical theology. This programme offers a variety of bespoke outcomes to diverse students engaged with Christian practice including strategic leadership training to senior level ministry personnel; the deeper integration of theological learning to contexts of practice; the honing of missiological and ecclesiological understandings as lived out in real-life situations. The programme focuses on using research to develop theological practice, to the mutual enrichment of both academic theology and faith practice.
There are two entry points for this programme. Stage 1A is for those with a good undergraduate degree and professional experience, who will initially take a selection of preparatory taught modules at master’s level. Stage 1B is for post-master’s applicants and is an accelerated form of the course.
Regardless of entry point this programme will help those already engaged in Christian Ministry and Service – diversely understood - to develop the advanced research, evaluative and reflective skills necessary to further their professional and career profile and contribute form their practice to wider theological discourse. Students will prepare for more senior level, national or international roles, as leaders, advisers or consultants in faith-practice and ministry. As a practitioner of Practical Theology, this course will encourage you to reflect technically and theologically on your practice, and on the application of scholarship and research to a range of faith, ecclesial and missiological contexts.
The DTh professional doctorate is intended to enable existing professionals working in church ministry, mission, education, development, or the para-church sector to move into senior or national positions within visionary research-led organisations.
