Course outline

Combining the study of theology and philosophy isn’t just intellectually rewarding, it’s also culturally and professionally enriching. Engage with humanity’s big questions and develop a highly transferable set of skills that will complement any career path you choose. Across your degree, you will explore the nature of truth, reality, ethics, power and beauty, while developing your understanding of Christian faith and practice and its core texts. Through your study of the intellectual foundations of the modern world, you will be equipped to respond powerfully to professional and social challenges to come.

If you’re interested in an overseas experience, you can study at our Rome Campus or at one of our partner universities around the world, join an international study tour, or participate in an archaeological excavation in Israel.
