A New MA Course in Digital Theology at Durham

A New MA Course in Digital Theology at Durham

CODEC are pleased to announce our new MA in Digital Theology, currently open for enrolment. Register interest by contacting us: [email protected].

It is the first degree of its kind across the world. It is delivered through a research centre at one of the world’s top one hundred universities, linked to a department ranked number 3 in the world. The Masters Degree offers a new opportunity for theological reflection on digital culture and its impact on contemporary religious practice – especially within the context of Christianity.

The course will explore:

  • how we think theologically about digital culture and how we might apply digital methodologies to our theological thinking
  • how key theological themes are impacted by serious engagement with digitality – what do we mean by incarnation in a digital world; how do we live ethically amidst digital technology; might transhumanism be a form of apocalypticism?
  • how religious practice adapts within a dominant digital culture, especially digitally mediated Christianity and whether there are boundaries to that adaptation.

You can take the course both as a one year full time student, or part-time over two or three years. The course will be taught through two teaching blocks, initially in the historic world heritage site of Durham’s medieval city, using a variety of online and offline settings.
