Why Not Study Theology?

The Dominicans are offering an affordable distance-learning programme in theology, which can be followed either for academic credit or for personal enrichment. People study from home, with occasional study-days at weekends, and with the support of on-line academic tutors. Hundreds of people have completed some or all of the Programme. Perhaps you would like to know more?
