Summary

The University of Aberdeen has trained Christian ministers since it was founded in 1495 by Bishop William Elphinstone who devoted learning to ‘the pursuit of truth in the service of others.’ The new flexible Master of Theology in Ministry Studies programme has been designed to enable church leaders to reflect deeply upon the theology and practice of Christian ministry in today’s world.

A two year, part-time degree programme in Practical Theology, the MTh in Ministry Studies combines an intellectually challenging and practically significant introduction to the nature of Christian ministry in a changing, challenging and complex social and cultural environment. This programme provides students with the option of starting their studies either in September or January and has been carefully created so that it is accessible to those who are already engaged in either full-time or part-time, ordained or lay Christian ministry. It is built around four one-week intensive modules held in September and January that will be delivered at Aberdeen University over a two year period. In addition to on-campus courses, we also offer online teaching and seminars.

There is a further Ministry Studies programme which is studied via distance learning with four one week intensive modules in September and January. These are delivered at Zomba Theological College over a two year period.
