This unit is offered to provide the student with the opportunity to integrate their learning through cross-disciplinary engagement with the practice of ministry. A theme specifically related to the practice of ministry will be identified by the student in consultation with the lecturer. The student will conduct a theological reflection on this theme through engagement with methodologies and concepts from across the different fields. Four compulsory interdisciplinary seminars will be conducted throughout the semester at which the student will present their progressive research and reflection to fellow students and staff. Input and feedback from the seminars will assist in the shaping of the theological reflection.
