Research MTh Scholarship
Youthscape and LST are partnering together to offer this scholarship because we are convinced about the need for the Church to have greater insight and understanding about young people. Change is needed, but it doesn’t happen by chance. It will require resources, prayer, innovation, impetus and the pooling of knowledge and experience. And it should be informed by theologically reflective research. Applicants submit a simple proposal form on their chosen subject, and one will be selected annually to receive the scholarship. A research-based Masters degree can take different forms. It could involve carrying out primary research, perhaps directly with young people or churches. Alternatively, it could take the form of what is called secondary research, using existing research data as the basis for the work. Unlike taught Masters programme, there are no lectures: you carry out the research project yourself, guided by your Supervisors.
The church needs Christians who have thought through the implications of their faith and can relate it incisively, relevantly and practically to society. The LST Theology programme is academically rigorous but also addresses the changing cultural and intellectual climate. It is a dynamic and innovative programme that does not neglect key foundational principles of an evangelical faith.
LST has a vision to see Christian counsellors who are both theologically articulate and professionally trained and this need is met through our integrated theology and counselling programme.
The college is privileged to be the only institution in the United Kingdom offering this unique course called ‘Theology and Counselling’, a joint-honours degree programme combining studies in Theology and training in Counselling. The conviction behind our vision for the course is that Christian counselling needs to be solidly based on the Bible and theology - and vice versa - that our understanding of the Bible and of theology deepens as we become equipped, as interpreters, with the insights that counselling gives.
LST offers two integrated undergraduate honours degree programmes - the only ones of their kind in Europe. As well as a substantial core programme of theological studies they offer a wide range of music and worship modules – including a Youth & Worship intensive which has lecturers from Soul Survivor.
We believe in pursuing excellence in music and that students should undertake to achieve the highest
attainable level as appropriate to their starting point. We are committed to equipping confident, theologically aware and spiritually attuned worship designers, facilitators, music directors and leaders of music worship, to serve effectively in the local church and elsewhere, and to train and release others in ministry.
