This programme is designed to enhance prior exegetical and theological training by providing a rigorous grounding in all core aspects of Old Testament Studies. It will enable you to build upon prior theological study through a programme focused on advanced engagement with the Old Testament, particularly as competent and confident interpreters of Biblical texts for the contemporary context.
Applicants should normally have completed at least one full year of academic study of Biblical Hebrew at the undergraduate level for entry to the MTh. For prospective applicants with a strong profile in Biblical Studies but less or no study of Hebrew, flexible accelerated provision prepares them for entry into the MTh programme.
The BibleMesh virtual learning environment provides video lectures, discussion forums, quizzes for self–assessment, a digital copy of the textbook and extensive additional e–resources. You will have access to the teaching of leading theologians such as Dr Tremper Longman III, Dr John Oswalt, Professor William W. Klein and Professor Craig L. Blomberg. You will also be able to benefit from the Cerego app, an online tool for your desktop, tablet or mobile device that builds on the latest in cognitive science to help you learn faster and remember longer.
