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;
  • Research of social and historical contexts of theological setting;
  • Awareness of personal perspective in doing theological reflection on specialised learning experience.

It is expected that students will both contribute to, and at times lead, discussions as a part of the assessment regime of the course.
