BA (Hons) Part-time

Students working towards the BA (Hons) in Theology, Ministry and Mission initially study alongside students doing the Certificate in Higher Education in Theology and Diploma in Higher Education in Theology covering foundations for theology and ministry including biblical studies, doctrine and church history.

In the final phase of the BA Hons degree programme, students are enabled to use their theological learning to examine issues and themes relating to contemporary life and ministry, including human identity, the nature of sin and evil, and salvation, transformation and apologetics.
