The Theological Studies (Hons) at University of St Andrews is a four-year course run by the School of Divinity. The course combines three distinct but closely related fields of study: theology, church history and practical theology.Modules in theology consider key topics (God, salvation, Jesus Christ, Trinity, creation) in relation to the contexts in which they emerged and developed throughout Christian history, and some of the key thinkers who developed those concepts. They also consider some of the distinctive challenges to faith in the modern world.
Graduates from the theological and biblical disciplines develop key transferable skills in critical thinking and in written and oral communication, which make them highly attractive to potential employers. Accordingly, employment prospects are usually wide ranging.
Recent graduates from the School of Divinity have found positions as:
- assistant minister with the Church of Scotland
- Youth Pastor with the Free Church of Scotland
- quality improvement officer with an English local council
- nursery nurse
- administrator with the Financial Services Authority (FSA)
