This unit is offered in order to enable postgraduate students to fulfil the capstone requirements related to their award and is intended to be taken in the student’s final year. It aims to direct, support and encourage the integration of student learning across the theological disciplines by means of the completion of a project that draws on the student’s prior learning and directs it towards an integrative treatment of a chosen topic.
Projects must include explicit engagement with methodologies, concepts and content from more than one discipline and show awareness of the issues related to creative and effective communication of theological ideas.
In consultation with their supervisor, the topics will be determined by the participants’ own interests and experience. Students will be expected to present their ideas to their peers and members of Faculty.
