Are you interested in understanding God’s heart for justice, for the poor, the needy and the powerless? Do some of the great issues of our time interest you; economic inequality, climate change and the Biblical mandate to be advocates for those who have no voice? This new MA might be just what you re looking for!
The University of Gloucestershire recently validated the course, which we feel will be an important contribution to the training needs of cross-cultural workers who may be going into contexts around the world where inequality and injustice is prevalent, and want to understand how to marry the biblical teaching with unjust realities on the ground; likewise for those already engaged in such issues in their work with charities, NGOs and churches, who wish to develop their theological and missiological understanding.
The course is flexible and can be done over one year (full-time) or 2-4 years (part-time), and consists of an introductory module to missiological trends and issues (MA1), justice issues in intercultural contexts (socio-political, economic and environmental) (MA14) and a specialist module on Advocacy and Reconciliation in intercultural contexts (MAJ1) delivered in conjunction with the Ministry of the Cross of Nails at Coventry Cathedral. The fourth module is an elective one with a number of options. You will also be able to do an in-depth dissertation on a justice-related subject.
