THEO900Advanced Studies in Theology for the 21st Century
Unit overview and content
In this unit, students will use their foundational studies in Theology to draw on the best insights from the Social Sciences, Philosophy, and other related studies. They will do so with special attention to new developments in Theology, focusing on the role of religion in the current context, especially in the public sphere. Students will constructively and creatively address current issues in Theology as they relate to their professional or scholarly interests.
Assumed knowledge or prerequisites
It will be expected that students have successfully completed THEO800, THEO801 and THEO802 from the BBI Graduate Certificate in Theological Studies, unless otherwise approved by the course coordinator. Students who enter the Master of Theological Studies with the equivalent of prior study in theology or a cognate discipline at the Graduate Certificate level will be understood to have met this requirement.
