CYM ~ BA (Hons) Practical Theology (with specialist pathways including JNC option)

The flexible suite of Practical Theology courses are designed to equip students through a range of practice, theology and ministry modules where learning in context is an essential element to student development. Full time students attend college at our new teaching centre in Leicester two days per fortnight and spend the rest of the time in relevant practice agency. The usual pattern is three years full time or up to six years part time.
Specialist pathways include Youth and Community Work (JNC), Children and Family Work, Chaplaincy and Contextual Ministry which allows for a range of other community based ministries. New for 2020 is the possibility of living and serving as part of the Community of the Tree of Life in Leicester as your learning context. We can help you find a suitable practice agency or explore the possibility with you of using your current context as part of your specialist pathway.
