New for 2020/2021

The study of World Christianities explores the plurality and vibrancy of Christianity outside of North American and Western Europe as well as it embeddedness in the historical and contemporary power structures of the Christian faith world wide.

The MPhil in World Christianities at Cambridge is designed to enable research in local and global Christian movements from multiple disciplinary angles.  The modules in this pathway offer an intensive engagement with essential themes and theories in the historical and contemporary study of World Christianity.  In addition, a series of source-based exercises and the dissertation allow students to develop their research capacity in this area.

For further questions, please contact the World Christianities pathway convener, Dr Jörg Haustein
