Theology and Philosophy within the University of London. The skills you will

complex ideas and to produce a coherent written account is essential in many
contexts. Theology is particularly useful not only for those working with one of
the churches, but also for those in the teaching profession, the social
services, or other occupations that are concerned with people and their values.
The managerial and organisational levels of the voluntary sector are also
particularly interested in those with theological expertise. For more information please click here.
