Master of Theology in Missiology (Taught)





The degree of Master of Theology is offered subject to validation by the University of Glasgow.


Fuller detail may be found in the Master of Theology in  Missiology (By Taught Courses) Degree Regulations and Information.


Programme Description

The programme forms part of our ETS Mission Centre and will be attractive to those whose want to develop their academic interests in mission, whether local or global, and to develop knowledge and skills that will make them more effective in their chosen career.

This new postgraduate programme is delivered by means of prescribed courses at ETS involving either one year of full-time study or two years part-time study. The programme may be completed on or off campus.

It is designed primarily for graduates in Theology or other relevant disciplines and could serve as an introduction for further research in Missiology at doctoral level.

In the first semester students will be required to study a compulsory Research and Study Skills module which will introduce them to the world of postgraduate study in the relevant areas together with the first of three main
courses. In the second semester, students will study the second and third main courses.

Each main course will be assessed by means of three 3,000-word essays. At the completion of the taught courses, students will then write a 15,000-word dissertation on a topic of their own choice, under the guidance of a supervisor.

The main supervisor for each candidate will be a member of ETS academic staff. There will be a second supervisor appointed by the University of Glasgow.
