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.

This Course was last offered in Semester 2 - 2017.
This course replaces the following course(s): THEO6032. Students who have successfully completed THEO6032 are not eligible to enrol in RELT6032.
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.
