Theology

A Masters degree gives you the opportunity to either further your understanding of a particular question or take off in a completely different way using skills you have gained from your previous undergraduate degree.

While some students may go on to work within a specific faith, others can use this degree to deepen their understanding of the divine as well as of people’s beliefs.
