“The best practical and vocational degree in the field! The knowledge you gain one day is highly applicable in the work environment the next day – BRILLIANT!!”
YEAR 2 CYM STUDENT
Covid-19 Update (August 2020)
PLEASE NOTE – CYM has had to take the decision not to recruit new students for the 2020-21 academic year. See here for more details.
The BA (Hons) in Practical Theology provides a flexible qualification for those wishing to train in mission and ministry in a range of contexts. Combining interactive and creative teaching days with challenge and inspiring practical work in a ministry context, the course is designed to support your growth and development in all areas of your life and ministry.
There are a number of specialist routes allowing student to focus on the area of work and ministry they are being called in to:
Children and Family Ministry
for those with a different or more general focus
Community Youth Work,
working with young people aged 11-19.
All students will begin Year 1 together, then choose their specialist pathway to go into their 2nd year. Many students come to college knowing exactly what their calling is, but others take a bit of time to narrow down their focus. This first year allows students time to test different routes and potentially spend time in a general practice context giving experience of a range of areas of ministry before specialising.
The Pathway is based on their practice in years 2 and 3 and culminates in the presentation of a portfolio of evidence at the end of their third year where the specialism will be confirmed.
The option is also available to not pursue a specialism. This may be suitable for those with a more general pastoral ministry whose focus is more broad than children or youth work and so on. It is also available for who are unable to complete their practice for a range of reasons. The award will be BA (Hons) in Practical Theology – with no specialism in brackets.
