Course Introduction

This course would allow you to explore the richness of Christian spirituality through historical, anthropological and theological lenses. It integrates theory with practice, and will be particularly appealing if you are in ministry, contemplating ministry or wanting to discover more about this exciting area. This master is designed to offer you the opportunity to study this field in some depth, from historical, theological, psychological and other points of view. The course examines different understandings of how Christians seek to relate to God, the underlying theology and the particular practices or lifestyles that express these understandings. The search for ?spirituality? is one of the most striking aspects of our contemporary Western cultures. In simple terms, the word ?spirituality? stands for the way we seek to live out our fundamental beliefs and values. In Christian terms, spirituality is based on a relationship with God, to whom we seek to respond. The skills acquired through this programme with provide an education which sensitises you to engaging with religious and ethical ideas from other times, cultures and places. Thus, it will equip you to go into a profession that engages with cross-cultural situations, such as non-governmental organisations in the UK and overseas, international relations, and the civil service. Students can exit with PGDip and PGCert.
