Have a long and distinguished tradition of specialist teaching in Biblical Studies going back many decades and, today, all our Biblical Studies staff continue to participate nationally and internationally in significant biblical research projects.
The School of Theology, Religious Studies and Islamic Studies has a vibrant research culture, and MRes students are encouraged to participate in research seminars.
The MRes programme is delivered as a full-time and part-time programme of study, and is also available as distance learning. It looks in its 60 credits taught element to encourage the student to explore in depth a range of topics relating to the Bible, both from historical and contemporary perspectives. All module content is available through the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and students will be supported throughout their studies through regular access to their module tutors, either one to one (by email, skype, phone), in groups (using media such as Skype), or via VLE module discussion forums or wikis.
Students will be supported through a variety of mechanisms using technology where appropriate, and particularly through the 120 credit Dissertation part of the programme. An annual residential graduate summer school is held for all students in July where students are able to experience lectures and seminars covering both issues related to generic learning and subject-specific information and to engage with a number of our research students.
