An Online MA in Catholic Theology from Durham University 

Durham University (UK) logo
Program Name: Catholic Theology (Distance Learning, DL)
Program Duration: 2-3 years part time
Hosted by: Durham University
Location: Online
Registration & Details: Here

The MA in Catholic Theology is an academically rigorous and highly flexible: students can work through material at their own pace, studying equally well in any time zone ​and in many different life situations, alongside work, ministry, family or caring obligations.   

It is now possible to enroll for a Postgraduate Certificate or a Postgraduate Diploma as well as the full MA. We want to be as flexible as possible, and to enable people to test the waters cautiously; we are also offering the core module, "Catholic Theology: A Preliminary Tour," as a stand-alone option.
