    Heavily considering doing this at University.

    Was wondering if any current/past scholars could give me any advice as to whether to take it?

    I am currently studying Maths, Physics, Economics & Furthere Maths at AS Level, but as a committed Christian, I have a huge desire to study God and work for him in the future!

    Any help would be hugely appreciated,

    Nice to see a fellow Philosophy/Theology person.

    Yeah, I decided not to choose Theology many because I felt it would be too, Bible related for me so i chose Philosophy instead - however, the mix of the two would be something good to consider!

    If you're interested in it then you should certainly consider it. Would RS/Philosophy A level not be a good choice however?

    You should look at the course specifications at the universities you wish to apply to as this will give you a good idea about whether or not the course(s) will be what you wish to study. Theology and Philosophy, while sharing some common ground, are rather different degree courses but you may wish, as the above stated, to consider joint honors.

    Cheers Anyone else got any advice/tips as to whether the degree is useful (either academically or for spirutual enrichment).

    I'm targetting Durham/Exeter as places to do it.

    @Paddy Power, in hindsight it may have been, but in all honesty, I want to do Theology through a genuine passion for it. I have no passion for 'RE' in schools as they just learn pointless facts and ceremonial rituals and answer questions in my opinion with little skill in terms of how they generalise religions. I'm doing plenty of extra-curricular things to demonstrate I can cope with essays. I recently completed a 10,000 word study on Revivals in History!

    Heythrop College is the Institute of philosophy and Theology.
    Worth a look.
