Degree (Level 6)


The final year (Level 6) of the BA (Hons) in Theology and Ministry is a 120-credit course of study. Entry is normally through the completion of the second year and so this third year represents a further year of full-time study (or its equivalent).

Cliff College reserve the right to offer alternative options to those listed here, according to availability.


The Programme includes an opportunity for a mission placement which is negotiated between the College and the student and should relate to the student’s particular interests or career expectations in Christian Ministry. Time is provided for journaling of these placement experiences, which requires the student to demonstrate a mature reflective approach to Christian Ministry in generality and in specifics.


Students write a dissertation of 6,000 words on a subject relating to their particular interests or career expectations (and hence to their placements). Dissertation subjects are agreed by negotiation with staff.

Teaching & Assessments

In the third year (Level 6) there are a number of 10 and 20 credit units, allowing students to engage in greater depth with a subject. Units are largely assessed by production of written work comprising up to 3,000 words for each 10 credits. In some units, other forms of assessment are used (eg a mock radio interview in Public Theology). At Level 6, there is also an opportunity to do an independent study unit (optional) and a 6,000 word dissertation (core). As in previous levels, attendance is required at all lectures or classes.
