About

The BD in Divinity (Hons) at the University of St Andrews is a shorter course intended for those who already have an undergraduate degree and are interested in focusing on theological and biblical studies. 

Overview

The programme Divinity (Hons) from University of St Andrews is a three-year course run by the School of Divinity. The course is only available to those who already hold an undergraduate degree and are now interested in focusing on theological and biblical studies. There is a four-year option for students who wish to also study biblical languages.

The course focuses on the teachings and practices of the Christian faith as rooted in biblical and theological studies, and considers the significance of faith today as well as the challenges to it. 

Students can expect to have the opportunity to engage with a number of specialist topics including, for example, the study of the biblical text in its original languages or the interactions of Christian theology with current scientific and philosophical developments.
