- Our students benefit from being part of a Theology and Religion faculty which is outstanding in both research and teaching.
- Applicants from any religious or secular background are
welcome and are encouraged to apply. Applicants do not need to be religious to
do the course.
- St John's is home to a lively, mutually supportive group of undergraduate and postgraduate students. The
cohort meets termly for subject-specific College events such as dinners, sometimes with guest speakers, and drinks parties.
- Our students have excellent library resources,
lectures, classes and above all tutorials which impart high-level skills
of researching, thinking and writing.
- Lectures and classes take place at central venues.
Tutorials are both in College with the Tutor in Theology and with a
wide range of other specialist tutors in other colleges.
- We have a steady record of Distinctions and
Firsts. Students also find time to be active in music, sport and a wide
range of university activities.
- Theology is an interdisciplinary subject
and the Theology course offers a wide range of topics to choose from.
Theology students have the opportunity to learn to read ancient texts in
their original languages and are offered the chance to learn Biblical
Hebrew, New Testament Greek, Vulgate Latin, Classical Arabic, Pali or Sanskrit.
