MA in Mission (The World of Work)

MA, Diploma and Certificate (Full or part time)  -  This strem is not being offered in this academic year

This stream is designed for lay or ordained persons, from all traditions, who are interested in exploring the challenges of mission in the world of work.  If you are looking for a stream that brings an emphasis upon missional understandings and their application in the workplace today, then this is the one for you!  The stream is delivered part time over two years and can be undertaken at a number of different levels.

There are two core units of study for the Mission (The World of Work) stream:  

  • Mission and the World of Work main themes include a study of the origins, development and current situation of the Faith at Work movement, workplace ethics, the theology and practice of mission at work and equipping the Church for mission at work.
  • Mission and the World of Work Literature main themes include an exploration of texts from denominations, organisations and individuals considering the issue of mission in the world of work.

This stream can be undertaken part time at a number of different levels:

  1. Postgraduate Certificate in Mission (The World of Work): a two-year part-time course incorporating the two units of study
  2. Postgraduate Diploma in Mission (The World of Work): a two-year part-time course incorporating the two core units of study and two units of study from across the syllabus
  3. MA in Mission (The World of Work): a two-year part-time course incorporating the two units of study AND two units of study from across the syllabus, plus a Masters level dissertation of 12–15,000 words.

For part-time students, there is one teaching week and one Independent Study Unit for the stream. The module specific to the course, MWW1, is delivered in November each year. It is expected that part-time students will work on average 12 hours a week for 30 weeks in each year in addition to researching a dissertation, if required. Full-time students will complete all the units relevant to their course in a year (up to four for MA level), and have until the following March to submit a dissertation, if required.


If you are looking for a course that will go wide in its grasp of the subject, deep into some key themes, and will prepare you for the challenges of our day, then this is the course for you!
