The modules in this programme have varying methods of delivery and assessment. For more details of each module, including weekly contact hours, teaching methods and assessment, please see the latest module catalogue which is for the 2019–2020 academic year; some elements may be subject to change for 2020 entry.
- Analytic Theology: God, History and Revelation: provides an overview of analytic theology, focusing on the field-changing developments that have taken place in Christian analytic philosophy over the last four decades.
- Reconciliation: Divine and Human: explores the doctrine of reconciliation and its implications for human relationships.
- Persons: Divine and Human: assesses the concept of the ‘person’ as used to describe the nature of God and the Trinity on the one hand, and the nature of human beings on the other.
Student dissertations are supervised by members of the teaching staff who advise on the choice of subject and provide guidance throughout the research process.
Students begin their dissertations at the start of Semester 2, but will have time for particular focus during the three months in summer. The completed dissertation of 15,000 words must be submitted by a date specified in August.
If students choose not to complete the dissertation requirement for the MLitt, there are exit awards available that allow suitably qualified candidates to receive a Postgraduate Diploma. By choosing an exit award, you will finish your degree at the end of the second semester of study and receive a PGDip instead of an MLitt.
The modules listed here are indicative, and there is no guarantee they will run for 2020 entry. Take a look at the most up-to-date modules in the module catalogue.
