Theological Studies in Philosophy and Ethics

This course offers you an exciting opportunity to work at the interface between theology, philosophy, and ethics. These disciplines have had a long history of interaction, productive engagement, and cross-fertilization, but also periods of mutual suspicion and critique. You will be provided with a rigorous grounding in the main areas of theological thinking and their significance for philosophical and ethical debates. A distinctive feature of the course is its focus on Continental Philosophy and Religious Philosophy, especially as they impact on Theology. You will study the thought of key theologians and philosophers and how they have shaped modern thinking about the role of religion in the world, and the ethical challenges faced by contemporary society. You will also acquire the skills to analyse key issues in theological and philosophical debate, identify the strengths and weaknesses of a variety of theological and philosophical theories, and construct your own arguments on a range of issues in theology, philosophy, and ethics. You will study in a recognised international centre of excellence, which holds a perfect score for the assessment of its teaching quality.
