This unit requires integrative study of two theological concepts: love and justice, and the relationship between them. It will entail biblical and theological study of the nature of love and justice, in relation to God and to human community.

The unit will draw upon the student’s theological studies across a range of disciplines, towards an integrated application in their own context.
The Capstone unit is undertaken within the final two semesters of a Masters Degree.
