The Church History and Theology programme of the University of Glasgow gives equal weight to the study of history, theology, history of ideas and historiography, enabling students to develop robust critical skills for analysing changing ideas, customs and intellectual traditions. What makes this programme distinctive is its engagement with not just the history of Christianity, but the changing historiography of Christianity, and its impact upon theology. This Masters is delivered by an international collaboration with Stellenbosch University (South Africa).
