Profile Description

At Birmingham we offer promising candidates the opportunity to carry out research in one of the UK's largest and most diverse Departments of Theology and Religion with our Theology and Religion PhD/MA by Research (On-Campus or by Distance Learning).

We offer subject specialisms in Biblical studies, Christian theology, Islamic studies, Jewish and Holocaust studies, Pentecostal and Charismatic studies, Quaker Studies and Religion and society. 

The MA by Research programme requires you to prepare a dissertation of up to 40,000 words on a topic of your choice, for which an academic staff member will provide expert supervision.

The PhD – the most advanced research degree – leads to a dissertation of up to 80,000 words on a subject of your choice and under the expert supervision of an academic member of staff.

You can study an MA by Research or PhD programme on campus or by distance learning. Please note that if you are studying with us by distance learning, there is a compulsory annual visit to campus (every two years for part-time PhD students).

Our main areas of research expertise, associated staff and PhD supervision areas, are below:

Biblical studies
Christian theology
Islamic studies
Jewish and Holocaust studies
Pentecostal and Charismatic studies
Philosophical theology
Quaker Studies
Religion and society

We also offer our Practical Theology Doctorate, which provides the opportunity to undertake a practice-based research degree to support professional and academic advancement.
 

Funding Notes

Funding applications for College scholarships are now open for 2018 entry. There are a limited number of funding opportunities with the College of Arts and Law, however, competition for these scholarships is fierce and only those with the highest credentials are likely to be successful. 

Enquiries from self-funded students are also welcome.

Funding Notes
