New for 2024

The CYM BA (Hons) in Practical Theology with Foundation Year allows students to develop your ministry and work with children, young people, families and their communities in a practical context.

You will grow in confidence, faith and practical skills as part of a worshipping community throughout your studies.

The addition of a foundation year to our BA (Hons) in Practical Theology opens doors to those not yet ready to enter Year 1 of our standard degree. If offers a grounding in principles of academic study in theology and the wider social sciences.  This could make our Theology degree accessible to those who do not have sufficient entry qualifications, or who would like additional time to return to study after a long break.

What will I study? There are three themes that you will study across the year in six modules: Foundations in practical theology; Education and society; and Being human in a digital world. Each of these gives you a grounding in working with people in the context of Christian mission and ministry.

The student is at the heart of the learning experience as you will be supported in your learning from day one through to completion of the degree. In addition to lectures, seminars and tutor groups, students will receive one to one support from CYM tutors to help them grow and achieve.
