“ I enjoy the style of teaching. Often a significant part of seminars is discussion based and it’s fantastic to hear other students’ take on a question. They’ve often read a different article from you, or analyse the same information, but have a totally different conclusion. I really enjoy that, you learn a lot from other people. I love my subjects. I always found history interesting but that interest has grown and grown into real enjoyment. Theology was attractive to me both as a Christian and as someone who likes history – understanding the Bible and the Church is key to gaining a clearer insight into the last 2000 years of world history.”
Len Cazaly is a graduate of our BA (Hons) Theological Studies degree and of our Masters in Theology, so is well placed to help students through their studies. Len is an active researcher, as well as being involved in church life as an elder, and holds the office of Reader in the Church of Scotland.
“ The Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree is an inter - and multi-disciplinary programme and is significant for pursuing a career in fields such as economics, business, and public services; including the civil and diplomatic services and local government. The degree is also useful for those intending further studies in law, journalism, social work and education with the aim of pursuing a career in any of the related fields. “
