At Heythrop we offer three specific programmes at Postgraduate Certificate level listed below.  These currently run on a part-time basis, usually comprising two modules taken over two terms.  Occasionally these modules are both timetabled in the same term, allowing a quicker progress through the programme.

PG Cert Ignatian Spirituality
PG Cert Mystical Theology
PG Cert Pastoral Ministry

Although initially, all masters’ students register for an MA degree, if you are unable to complete the full programme, you may be eligible for a Postgraduate Diploma (based on four modules without the dissertation) or a Postgraduate Certificate (based on two modules – (usually specific) modules).
