Regent’s admits more undergraduates to the Final Honour School of Theology & Religion than any other college, which makes for a rich and supportive environment for students in these subjects. Dedicated tutors across a range of subjects and excellent resources in the college library mean that Theology & Religion students can make the most of their studies, with many taking First Class degrees.
Our tutors include:
Dr Robert Ellis – Principal and Tutorial Fellow in Pastoral and Systematic Theology
Dr Tim Bradshaw – Tutorial Fellow in Christian Doctrine
Dr Nicholas Wood – Tutorial Fellow in Religion and Culture
Dr Myra Blyth – Tutorial Fellow in Worship and Pastoral Studies
Dr Larry Kreitzer – Tutorial Fellow in New Testament
Dr Jordan Bell – Senior Lecturer in Philosophy
Dr John Jarick – Lecturer in Old Testament
Dr Matthew Mills – Lecturer in Medieval Studies
For papers not covered ‘in-house’, tutorials are arranged with tutors based at other colleges, and all students may take advantage of the lectures and classes at the Faculty of Theology & Religion. Regent’s students thus benefit from a strong support network in college whilst enjoying the full opportunities of the wider university.
Details of the course can be found on the website of the Faculty of Theology and Religion. The degree gives a fine grounding in critical thinking in various disciplines, including interpretation of texts, contemporary contexts, and historical analysis. Oxford students are trained to take responsibility for their research each week, analysing their work and presenting their critical essays in answer to challenging essay topics and tutorial criticism. Graduates are thus well prepared for the job market, especially for employers needing resourceful and independently-minded problem solvers.
