The BTh builds on the introductory knowledge and skills acquired in the Certificate. For students admitted direct to the BTh, the syllabus for the first year (if studied full-time) or first two years (if studied part-time) is the same as for the Certificate. Students will develop a broad knowledge and understanding of the beliefs, practices, texts and history of the Christian tradition, and, where appropriate, other world religions, together with knowledge and understanding of advanced theological, biblical, and religious concepts and language. Students can also focus on an area or areas of theology of particular interest, including writing a sustained piece of theological reflection or a dissertation. In addition to the six introductory papers taken for the Certificate, BTh students take a further twelve papers including at least one biblical paper, one history/doctrine paper and one practical theology/religious studies paper. Students can also undertake a piece of individual research culminating in a dissertation, project or a sustained piece of theological reflection. Assessment is by essay, project, portfolio and at least two written examinations.
