MA in Muslim Chaplaincy

Programme Structure and Requirements

 The MA in Muslim Chaplaincy programme is designed to give students the opportunity to develop and advance their knowledge and understanding in Chaplaincy subjects relevant to their own areas of interest. The course is arranged to offer flexibility, enabling students to chose from a range of modules designed to enhace their professional and personal development with an ability to contextualise their theological knowledge and familiarity.

Optional modules allow students to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to chaplaincy. This will enable students to gain a critical awareness of current problems and offer insights into professional practice and academic discipline. Optional modules will be subject to sufficient demand and availability of appropriate resources.

Taught sessions held at the MIHE campus will be delivered on weekdays. Assessment is based on 100% coursework.

The MA programme is a full academic year, taught over a 12 month period comprising three semesters. Part-time study is also available.
