Certificate of Higher Education (CertHE) Theology

Course description: 
The CertHE provides a foundation in the main sub-disciplines of theology: biblical studies, doctrine, history, and practical ministry. A central year-long module is Scripture for Theology & Ministry, which explores the nature and purpose of Scripture, biblical interpretation and the way in which Scripture relates to issues in ministry, theology and to our self-knowledge. In addition to the careful and sequential ordering of compulsory modules, flexibility with elective modules enables students to prepare themselves for a variety of ministries, including pastoral leadership, cross-cultural ministry, youth and children’s ministry and specialisation in a particular theological discipline. The majority of content for this award is at Level 4 (CertHE level); however, students also have the opportunity to study some optional content at Level 5 (DipHE level) if desired. The CertHE provides a self-contained programme in its own right, as well as serving as the first year of the DipHE and BA (Hons) Theology, and is particularly popular with students who wish to study part time alongside employment (often in a ministry setting) or who wish to explore whether higher education is right for them.
