Catholic Theology and Practice

On Thursday afternoons, we run our course, Catholic Theology and Practice. The programme is designed to be flexible, and is, for example, a good entry point for those thinking of resuming study after a lengthy gap; or for graduates in a discipline other than theology who need to have appropriate formal theological study before applying for the MA in Pastoral Theology.

Features

  • Although it’s not compulsory, students who want to write assignments or essays can do so in consultation with the Director of Studies. These can be set for different levels of study.
  • The programme is currently taught on Thursday afternoons from 2–5.30pm. Teaching is followed by Mass and community supper.
  • The course comprises five modules a year offered on a three-year cycle. Students can join at any point and study for anything between one and three years. It is possible to register for one semester or even for just one module.
