The UCTh is designed to introduce students to the sources and content of the Christian story and message and provides training which emphasises application and articulation of this story and message in the contemporary world including professional and vocational life.
It introduces students to specialist disciplines by which Knowledge of God is developed and articulated:
- Bible & Languages (OT/NT/BB/LA)
- Christian Thought and History (TH/CH/BB)
The course provides a grounding for ministry by establishing a foundation in theological knowledge and reflection. Through an elective unit, students can synthesise Christian understanding with particular occupational and/or life interest or develop practical ministry skills.
