Course summary

The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in Theology degree offers more extensive study of a particular field of theology at an advanced level, with rigorous training in relevant research methods and a period of scholarly research and writing.

This 21-month course offers extensive graduate education in a specialist field of theology. It includes a thesis of up to 30,000 words based on independent scholarly research, which may contribute to a future research degree, three written examination papers, and three short essays or one long essay.

Two units, amounting to 40% of the course, will be assessed in the first year, with the remaining units, including the dissertation, assessed in the second year. The precise units assessed in the first year will be determined by the subject stream the student is studying. The choice of essays and dissertation topics is decided by the student, subject to advice from the supervisor and final approval by the Graduate Studies Committee of the Faculty of Theology and Religion. Your supervisor, in most cases, will be the course coordinator for the specific subject stream of the MPhil in Theology on which you are enrolled. They will provide support, guidance and an overall direction for your studies.

The Faculty of Theology and Religion runs graduate seminars in different subjects, which offer a space for all those doing graduate work to meet regularly and to share aspects of your work with your peers. The seminars are an important way of staying in touch with peers and presenting your research at various stages of development.
