Theology Work Integrated Learning

This course provides opportunities for third year students to develop a project that integrates their work with their learning in the theology degree program. This course will function as a capstone to the degree and will develop advanced levels of theological understanding and research skills 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 engage the following broad areas of study: sacred texts, development of belief systems, interfaith theology, religious ritual and liturgical practices, religious law, religious history. However, they will do so in relation to their vocational experience as the context for their study and reflection.
