Nazarene Theological College (NTC) is pleased to offer degree-level study through its Learning Centre in the east end of Glasgow.
In its urban home on Gallowgate, the Centre offers a vibrant community setting that has a focus on learning in context, integrating field-based learning with stretching classroom-based study. It’s home to a great teaching team and placement support, alongside access to library resources, so whether you want to be a full-time student, enhance your professional development, further resource your ministry team, or dip your toe in the water by taking one class, there’s something here for you.
BA (Hons) in Theology (Youth and Community)
Students are able to pursue a University of Manchester validated BA (Hons) in Theology (Youth and Community) that will see them complete their placement and the majority of their class-based units in Scotland, whilst taking advantage of regular intensive study periods at the main campus in Manchester. This course is ‘designated’ for SAAS funding, which not only meets the costs of the course fees but also helps considerably towards your living costs. It’s the only such course based in Scotland, and (uniquely) is professionally validated in both Scotland and England, offering a wide range of employment and vocation options after graduation.
MA in Theology
The Glasgow Centre is also approved for a range of MA in Theology options – particularly those in the Urban Ministry and Transforming Leadership pathways. Drawing on the resources of Wes White and Neopolis, the course wrestles with the core questions of the shape of ministry in the world’s great cities. You can also take just a PG Certificate – two units, suited beautifully for those in ministry who want to sharpen their thinking.
NTC and SSCM (the Scottish School of Christian Mission) developed a collaborative partnership over the past three years. However, the Board of SSCM decided to dissolve as a charity, confident, in the words of their board, that NTC, “working to its strengths, can better carry the vision of mission and transforming communities across Scotland and further afield.”
NTC, which began its life on the edge of Glasgow almost 70 years ago, will continue to fulfil the need and desire for a Scottish-based centre of evangelical Christian learning and teaching, specialising in training in youth work, community transformation and urban mission, designed and delivered in and for Scotland. The College has already begun to recruit Scottish-based students for the next academic year and we are excited for the future.
