Higher Education Opportunities

Studying on higher education programmes can enable students to engage with the reality and complexities of the world in which we serve. Along with the specific contribution to the theology and ministry of The Salvation Army, it enables the organisation’s work to be recognised and appreciated in academic circles.

For students, studying at this level can provide the opportunity to gain in depth knowledge and develop their skills and practice whilst meeting their full potential.

Higher Education Study at William Booth College

There are two degree programmes delivered at William Booth College that are available to people in ministry in The Salvation Army who have completed Salvation Army Officer training. Both the BA (Hons) Pastoral Care with Psychology and BA (Hons) Christian Theology & Practice programmes top-up the studies completed in officer training to degree level, and have been specifically designed and developed for ministry within The Salvation Army. Each student has a qualified personal tutor who provides support, guidance and encouragement as they progress through their chosen course. Students are encouraged throughout to integrate theory with practice in their ministerial roles.

Higher Education Study at External Institutions

Applications for role related undergraduate and postgraduate study, along with doctoral programmes, offered by other academic institutions are considered.

In conjunction with The Salvation Army, the University of Stirling offer an MSc in Substance Use. This programme explores how substance use affects substance users, family members, communities and broadly contemporary societies.
