For the past few years, the Centre for Digital Theology has run the worlds's first MA in Digital Theology at Durham University. We've had a brilliant time with our students on that course. We've had techies, academics, church ministers, preachers, engineers, and ministerial students on the course. One of them, Craig Philbrick wrote this:
“The content, structure and flexibility of the MA in Digital Theology is assisting me in my ministry. The regular supervision and the delight of exchanging ideas with fellow students by learning from their own contexts are all aspects of part-time study that I am valuing immensely. What is great about digital culture is that it challenges us all over again on how to be properly human. I have experienced that this is a well-run course, and with the benefit of a study day, it has brought energy and creativity to my ministry and pushed my thinking further than it would have gone without it.”
Now we have some wonderful news.
From January 2021, the MA will be available at Spurgeon's College in London. We'll be offering the course online from January18th, headed up by myself as Head of Digital Theology at Premier, and Jonas Kurlberg as Research Fellow at the Centre for Digital Theology. We're currently taking expressions of interest and expect prospective students to be able to register very soon.
This course offers an opportunity to learn more about the theology of online church, the practice of online church and the missional importance of online church. All issues that we've been talking about all over the world over the last few months! You may have seen a blog on this, or caught a Premier Webinar on it. But in this course we bring in the key people exploring Digital Church in today's world and we encourage our students to think it through together and learn the skills to practice it in ministry. This course is amazing!
We're pleased to have been able to keep course fees competitive and well within the guidelines for the government's Postgraduate Loans scheme.
We'll be offering the course full-time over 2 years or part-time over 4 years. You can even take a PG Certificate or a PG Diploma without doing the full MA! Deadline for registration will be in early January and we hear that lots of people are registering. If you want to secure a place on this awesome programme.
