Common Awards in Theology, Ministry and Mission
About the Common Awards
The Common Awards in Theology, Ministry and Mission strive to
combine creativity and academic rigour in developing pathways of
learning that are transformative while promoting the flourishing of
distinctive patterns and cultures of teaching and learning. They
embrace the formational dimensions of the pursuit of knowledge and
the acquisition of skills, encouraging learners to explore and
inhabit their calling and become lifelong learners open to the
dynamic of the Spirit.
They are a suite of higher education awards
that have been developed in partnership with Durham University.
Practitioners and theological educators from across the country
have worked together to create the awards which are offered through
theological colleges, courses and dioceses in the Church of England
and its partner churches.
The Common Awards offer qualifications at Certificate,
Diploma, BA(Hons) and MA levels. They embrace the richness of
diverse traditions and approaches while encouraging creative
collaboration for the sake of the mission of God.
Partnership with Durham
