Undergraduate courses

Cranmer Hall offers three courses at BA level:

  • Certificate in Theology, Ministry and Mission (120 credits)
  • Diploma in Theology, Ministry and Mission (240 credits)
  • BA in Theology, Ministry and Mission (360 credits)

The BA courses are validated through Common Awards, the national validation programme for theological and ministerial education, which is based at Durham University. The aim of the courses is to provide an integrated vocational training for ordained and lay ministry in which theology informs mission and ministerial practice and practice informs theology.

The Certificate is available through one year’s full-time or two years’ part-time study in Durham, and constitutes, in effect, the first year of the BA in Theology, Ministry and Mission.

On successful completion of the Certificate, it is possible to transfer to the Diploma or Degree courses.

Candidates for the Certificate take modules up to the value of 120 credits at Level 1 (Common Awards Level 4) from the Theology, Ministry and Mission course.

The course is appropriate for anyone who is keen to explore Theology and Ministry through a course of systematic study leading to a University-validated qualification. Students of the Certificate are members of St John’s College and have access to a wide range of College and University facilities.

The Diploma is available through two years’ full-time or four years’ part-time study in Durham, and constitutes, in effect, the first two years of the BA in Theology, Ministry and Mission.

After successful completion of the Diploma, it is possible to take courses equivalent to the third-year degree course to convert the Diploma to the BA Degree.

Candidates for the Diploma study modules from Levels 1 and 2 (Common Awards Level 4 and 5) of the Theology, Ministry and Mission course, up to the value of 120 credits per Level.

The course is appropriate for anyone who is keen to explore Theology and Ministry through a course of systematic study leading to a University-validated qualification. Students of the Diploma are members of St John’s College and have access to a wide range of College and University facilities.

The Degree is available either through two or three years’ full-time study in Durham. Study over two years depends on previous qualifications (further particulars given below) and a concession being granted by the University for direct entry into the second year.

The Degree is normally undertaken over a period of three years full time study in Durham. The degree is taught on a modular basis and includes double modules which are taught over two terms. Full time study requires 120 credits each year, with each double module providing 20 credits.

The course is suitable for anyone who is keen to explore Theology, Ministry and Mission through a course of systematic study leading to a University-validated qualification. Students of the Degree are members of St John’s College and have access to a wide range of College and University facilities.

Cranmer Hall will consider applications for Accredited Prior Learning for Direct Entry into the second year of the Degree (Common Awards Level 5). Such applications are normally made by candidates with a 2:1 degree from a British University, or equivalent, or who have completed theology or religious studies modules with a value of 120 credit units at another Higher Education institution.

The period between when the learning for which Accredited Prior Learning is being applied for took place, and the time at which an Accredited Prior Learning application is being made, should normally be no more than five years.

One of the options that is open to those studying for three years at Cranmer Hall is to spend much of their first two years doing the Durham Univeristy Department of Theology and Religion Degree.

We would be happy to discuss this option with you, although applicants should note that this route involves additional entry criteria and is not open to all.

Further details about the department, with which we work very closely in all that we do, are available here.

Choosing Your Modules

Your choice of modules is affected by the number of credits you need, the appropriate level and whether you are an ordinand, a Cranmer Undergraduate or on the Free Church Track.

Credits

For each year of full-time study you need to take courses that will earn you 120 credits. If you are studying part-time, you must earn 40, 60, or 80 credits in each year of study, depending on the length of your course. Some modules are worth 20 credits, others are worth 10. The Dissertation in Level 3 (TMMC3042) is worth 40.

Levels

The modules are divided into three levels. Normally, you take Level 1 modules in your first (full-time equivalent) year of study, Level 2 modules in your second (full-time equivalent) year, and Level 3 modules in your third (full-time equivalent) year. However, you can opt to take up to 30 credits (out of 120) from modules in the level immediately below the one you are currently in. For example, at Level 2 you could opt to take up to 30 Level 1 credits.

Additional requirements

Your choice of modules will be restricted in different ways depending on whether you are a Cranmer Undergraduate or a student training for ministry. Students for authorised church ministry are normally subject to denominational requirements for study. However, because there are not programme requirements, they do not affect Cranmer Undergraduates.
