The Revd Canon Dr Andrew Todd begins his new role as Programme Leader in Christian Spirituality at Sarum College on 1 February.
Dr Todd will oversee Sarum College’s thriving ecumenical MA in Christian Spirituality programme and support the development of learning opportunities within its Centre for Contemporary Spirituality.
Sarum is widely known for its excellence in the area of Christian Spirituality.
The MA programme occupies a high-profile position within the Centre for Contemporary Spirituality. It is the College’s longest running MA programme and has the largest enrolment of its postgraduate programmes. With nine optional and three co-validated modules, it offers a breadth of study in the field of Christian Spirituality unrivalled in the UK.
“Andrew brings a national and international reputation for teaching and research excellence,” says The Revd Canon Dr James Woodward, Principal of Sarum College. “I am looking forward to working and learning alongside him.”
Dr Todd’s former roles were as Director of Research & Postgraduate Programmes at St. Padarn’s Institute, and Director of the Cardiff Centre for Chaplaincy Studies. He has 20 years’ experience of developing, delivering and managing postgraduate programmes in theology.
“I am delighted to be joining Sarum College,” says Dr Todd. “I look forward to further exploring the interaction between Christian spirituality and contemporary popular and public spirituality, with colleagues, students on the MA and the wider learning community that Sarum is gathering and enabling.”
