Course Description

Intercultural Theology and Interreligious Studies (M.Phil.)



Intercultural Theology and Interreligious Studies integrates a variety of theological and other disciplines in order to explore significant and complex relationships within and between religious communities and their traditions. These fields of study attend closely to the connections and tensions experienced as the religions encounter alternative social, political and cultural resources of meaning and identity. This course focuses on the practical and theoretical possibilities posed by intercultural dialogue, and on the challenges of sustaining communities in which the praxis of peace and reconciliation with others is given concrete embodiment.

A variety of modules is offered each year, drawn from the list below. A module on Research and Methods is compulsory; students select a further 5 modules for assessment and write a dissertation.  Modules include: Authority, Tradition, Experience: Ecumenics as Intercultural Theology; World Christianity and Interreligious Dialogue; Comparative Theology: Meaning and Practice; Religions and Ethics in a Pluralist World; Nature, Grace and the Triune God; NGOs in Theory and Practice; Developing Doctrine: Identity and Change in Christian Tradition; and Religion, Conflict and Peace in International Relations to name but a few.
Modules may change from year to year.
