Alternatively, students may choose to specialise in either Anglican Studies or Catholic Studies for the awards of MA in Theology and Religious Studies (Anglican Studies) or MA in Theology and Religious Studies (Catholic Studies). On these routes, students study the spirituality and theology of each tradition and explore them within their contemporary context.
'Modules leading towards the Church Colleges' Certificate in Church School Studies (Anglican) and the Catholic Certificate in Religious Studies are offered as an option for those students who intend to teach in church schools.
