Spurgeon’s College offers two Master’s programmes validated by the University of Manchester: the MA in Christian Thought and Practice, and the Master in Theology (MTh).

The MA is open to those who have a good degree in a subject other than theology, and wish to start exploring theology at postgraduate level. For details of the MA course structure please see the MA Programme Specification.

The MTh is open to those who have a good degree in theology. Students choose one of the following pathways:

Advanced Christian Studies
Biblical and Theological Studies
Applied Theology
Preaching

The Advanced Christian Studies and Biblical and Theological Studies pathways are followed in taught mode. The Applied Theology and Preaching pathways are followed in distance learning mode, supplemented by the occasional tutorial and teaching days at College, and are for those engaged in Christian ministry.

If you have a good degree in theology and are seeking accreditation as a Baptist Minister, the MTh pathway in Advanced Christian Studies can be taken for ministerial training.

For details of the MTh course structure please see the MTh Programme Specification.

This wide range of opportunities provides for academic interests as well as for the personal development of students. For some, a Master’s course can provide a stepping stone to doctoral study and maybe an academic career. For details of the units of study offered, please see Postgraduate Units. Please note that not all units are offered in a particular year.
