The Department of Theology and Religious Studies at University of Wales Lampeter is 9th in the UK for Research Power (“Research Fortnight”, from RAE 2008) and 1st in the UK for postgraduate distance learning (“Guardian”, February 2009). It is ranked 13th in the UK for undergraduate Theology and Religious Studies (“The Independent”, April 2009).

“Lampeter has always had a quaint and rather monastic reputation, being small…brilliant at religious studies and too remote for train links. But, with Lampeter rocketing up the league tables, a new future beckons, as it plans to merge with Trinity University College” (“The Independent”, July 2009). The new university will be called University of Wales Trinity Saint David, harkening back it roots in preparing Church of England clergy and the patron saint of Wales, which Lampeter was first named after.

My letter from the Department of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Wales, Lampeter arrived in the post (dated 3 February 2010). After completing the required Postgraduate Diploma, my studies are upgraded to the Masters of Theology dissertation. Upon completing the Masters dissertation I’ll take a Master of Theology in Scripture and Theology for Practice from the Department of Theology and Religious at the University of Wales, Lampeter. The University is joining forces to form a new university called the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. My goal is to officially enter doctoral studies in philosophical and theological hermeneutics by the end of 2011, at the latest. Some notable scholars working in the area of the theological interpretation today are Stephen E. Fowl, Merold Westphal, Daniel J. Treier, Joel B. Green, and Kevin Vanhoozer.
