Advanced Studies - Directed


This course provides the opportunity for specialised study in theology under the tutelage and guidance of a specialist in the field in question. It seeks to further the learning experience of the student by engaging in appraisal and analysis of a particular area within theology, allowing for more in depth study than would normally be covered in regular course work.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of the course students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate advanced knowledge of a particular theological topic or theme as part of the wider dimension of theological discourse;

2. Show that they are apprised of a selection of core literature and other sources relevant to their chosen theological area.

3. Demonstrate advanced skills of literature review and analysis pertinent to their selected sources.

4. Present a major work (in sections or as a whole) that demonstrates early and developing skills of descriptive, interpretive and critical research based on literature.


Themes will include:

  • Critique of local and global issues in relation to a particular discipline;
