Theology - University of Winchester

- Examine theological arguments, ancient texts and ethical controversies and see how they link to current issues - Develop your skills as a writer, debater, and thinker - Learn from staff who are comfortable with big questions and know how to make their subject interesting - Enjoy opportunities to specialise in your own areas of interest Our Theology programme deals with big questions of human existence. Why do we exist? Can we prove the existence of God? What is the role of religion in the contemporary world? How should we treat each other? You will examine traditional Christianity in the modern world, paying equal attention to its roots, its formation and culture, and its role in modern society. You will study the background of the Bible (especially the New Testament), through the analysis of the texts and also through an exploration of their cultural, philosophical and historical context. On our BA (Hons) Theology programme you will also study how Christian thought emerged from its Biblical context, how it encountered the Greek philosophical tradition, and how it gradually developed its own theological and philosophical language, both in the age of the Fathers and today. You will also study the political and cultural context of the development of Christianity, which will allow us to understand the nuances and the difficulties in the formulation of the Church in different parts of the world. Finally, we invite you to study the place and the challenges of Christianity in the modern world, and its dialogue with it, along ethical, philosophical and political lines. Whether you wish to study Christianity from a position of faith, or whether you prefer to study it from a critical perspective, this programme will allow you to do so. We commit both to solid scholarship and to a deep examination of Christianity as an experience and way of life, as a revelation, and as an exploration of the spiritual nature of the human being. Some of our students arrive with destinations in mind, but others discover their vocation while they’re here. Graduates commonly find work as teachers, journalists, social workers and academics, or in the charity sector. Wherever you’re heading, we want to help you reach there. A degree that addresses what it means to reason, to be, to act, to believe, to read – we think that’s a good place to start.
