Aims/Description: The dissertation offers students the chance to engage in an extended course of directed readings and research on an area of theology of particular interest to them, with individual tutorial guidance from a supervisor with particular expertise in the field. In conjunction with this supervisor, they will negotiate their own area of research and a programme of study that is manageable within one year. This is an opportunity to undertake research in an area that complements and extends, without overlapping, the major field of study of their MA programme.

Teaching Methods: Lectures, Seminars, Tutorials, Independent Study
Assessment: Course work
