The CYM BA Honours degree in Practical Theology allows you to develop your ministry and work with children, young people, families, and their communities in context. On our programmes you learn by doing, not just by sitting in a classroom. 

You will grow in your faith through theological study, and by being part of a worshipping community, and living out your relationship with God in practice. 

Your practical ministry skills will develop as you apply your knowledge of working with people and the communities in which they live. As you reflect on your work, your understanding and vision for ministry will expand, and you'll gain greater clarity of the areas to which you feel called.

The first year of the BA course is designed to help you test and develop your calling; then, in years two and three, you will focus on one of our Specialist Pathways for the remainder of your course.
