Studying theology enables you to engage the 21st century world with a variety of Christian perspectives. It encourages you to think critically about Christian belief and the Bible, as well as considering local and global expressions of Christian faith. You will engage with the core subjects of philosophy and theology, biblical studies and ethics; but could also explore, if you choose, other faith traditions, or religion and culture, or violence and nationalism and other specialisms.
Chester is an exciting place to study Theology. With a large team of theologians and biblical specialists working at the cutting edge of their fields, we are able to offer an excellent range of modules. You will have the opportunity to develop your own interests and engage contemporary questions with theological texts and traditions.
" You get all the core traditional elements on this course, and their contemporary expression, and you also have the opportunity to develop your own interests and concerns. By your final year you will be able to develop some of this into a dissertation project of your own design."
Our Department is located in a Victorian building which houses a computer room, kitchen, student social and study space, and three purpose-built modern lecture rooms.
You will be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, individual tutorials, study visits, small group work and one-to-one tutorials. There are also opportunities for field trips in the UK and abroad.
Typically, a full-time student can expect about 12 hours per week taught sessions in the first year, reducing to about eight hours of contact time a week by Year 3.
Your personal study time, preparing for and following up taught sessions, brings this up to a total of 36-40 hours study-time per week.
Assessment is mainly by coursework, e.g. essays, portfolios, presentations and seminars. A very few modules have a short exam.
As part of your studies you may take our Work Based Learning module, where you will be fully supported in securing a work placement of at least 150 hours, which you may be able to use in trying out a future career. Alternatively, we currently offer an option that explores the different approaches to Religious Education (RE) teaching, and issues related to RE in faith schools. This option may include a placement shadowing an RE teacher.
Studying abroad is a great way to broaden your horizons and enhance your academic experience. There may be an opportunity on this course for a short period of travel and study abroad.
Your course will involve additional costs not covered by your tuition fees. This may include books, printing, photocopying, educational stationery and related materials, specialist clothing, travel to placements, optional field trips and software.
