This MA is designed for students who are concerned about the current environmental challenges faced by our planet and the contribution that religious faith and theology can make within interdisciplinary approach to these challenges.
Co-created with the Jesuits in Britain, Roehampton offers a degree that fully immerses you in the subject. Taught by a team of scholars contributing to this debate out of their various specialisms, you will also benefit from guest lecturers from specialist research institutes and other organisations who will bring with them a wealth of experience and the opportunity for you to make contacts and build networks. This degree is taught entirely in central London, and part-time students have the option to only take evening classes, allowing you to fit studies around other commitments.
The course will provide you with the opportunity to explore the diverse methodologies employed in the fields of biblical studies, eco-theology, theological ethics and philosophy as they engage with today’s environmental challenges. Tackling our varied human responses to the growing environmental crisis, this degree will enable you to work in a theology-led but necessarily interdisciplinary approach.
You will gain critical, analytical and research skills that will enable you to develop and interpret new knowledge in the broad field of ecological theology. The programme is rooted in both the Western philosophical and Eastern and Western Christian traditions, but it is mindful of the contributions of other world faiths and indigenous belief systems, including First Peoples, Amerindians, and Aboriginal.
Students on this programme will be equipped to pursue higher level academic research in this field and/or to become a reflective practitioner or activist pioneering practical change. Potential could careers could be in NGOs, teaching, industrial settings, law, government, or academia.
Located in south-west London, the University of Roehampton has a 54-acre parkland campus with state-of-the-art facilities, located within 30 minutes of central London.
The University has a history dating back over 175 years. Through its oldest College, Whitelands, it has provided higher education to women for longer than any university in the country. Today, it has a thriving range of postgraduate programmes and an excellent research profile.
