World Christianity

Understand a wide range of Christian belief, culture and practice.

We are committed to offering a high-quality experience to all our students. We are working to minimise the impact of COVID-19, but we have reluctantly decided that we will be unable to offer this programme for entry in 2020. If you are interested in joining us next year, applications usually open in October (eg. October 2020 for September 2021 entry).

Please note research programmes in the field of World Christianity, including the research MTh/MSc, are open for 2020 applicants. You can find out more information here:
