Academic Pathways

YMC offers a variety of academic pathways, including Diploma, BA and MA options.

Our Diploma and BA pathways are offered through Durham University (Common Awards), in line with many theological colleges nationwide. YMC delivers Common Awards teaching as part of the Yorkshire Theological Education Partnership, which includes The Church Army, St Barnabas Theological Centre and the regional Diocesan Schools of Ministry.   

Our Masters awards are also offered through Durham University (Common Awards, subject to validation). 

At interview, we work with prospective students to identify the best way to build on prior knowledge and study, including previous theological study, qualifications in other relevant subject areas and ministry experience. A priority for us in this process is to identify areas in which candidates can be formed for ministry and equipped with the best possible foundation for further theological reflection.
