At St Augustine’s we believe that everyone should be able to access the right level of theological study that works for them.

If you’re interested in studying theology at postgraduate level, but joining a full MA degree programme feels like a big step, the MA Taster Module might be for you.

An MA Taster Module gives you an opportunity to get a flavour for academic study at MA level. You can find out whether studying theology at postgraduate degree level is right for you – without committing to a full degree programme.
