About

The Practical Theology programme of the University of Roehampton offers a variety of bespoke outcomes to diverse students engaged with Christian practice including: strategic leadership training to senior level ministry personnel and the deeper integration of theological learning to contexts of practice.

Overview

Summary

The Practical Theology programme of the University of Roehampton focuses on using research to develop theological practice, to the mutual enrichment of both academic theology and faith practice.

In order to develop your research skills, the programme will provide you with extensive knowledge and understanding of areas of Practical Theology and the critical methods practised at the forefront of the discipline. Students be enabled to reflect on these research methods in looking at their own practice, researching this both empirically (where appropriate) and from theological discourses, producing findings that satisfy peer scrutiny and are deemed to be of publishable quality, making an original contribution to knowledge.

Career options

The DTh is intended to enable existing professionals working in church ministry, mission, education, development or the para-church sector to move into senior or national positions within visionary research-led organisations.
