Directed Studies in Religion and Theology


This course provides opportunities for second year students to develop and extend their theological skills, knowledge and insights through a customised learning experience which may include guided, intensive scholarly reading in particular fields or disciplines and/or pursuit of particular vocational interests or career avenues in real-world settings (ie. regular or intensive, interactive and practical experience). Students may choose from the following broad areas of study: sacred texts, development of belief systems, interfaith theology, religious ritual and liturgical practices, religious law, and religious history.

Students may also propose a vocational experience as the context for their study and reflection, for example in a place of worship, social welfare agency, educational context or institution.
