This unit consists of lectures, tutorials, guided reading and supervised personal study that integrate key concepts of the scriptural, doctrinal, moral and liturgical dimensions of the Catholic tradition, to enable students to present a written account of the Church’s faith and its implications for ministry in contemporary settings. Students participate in a series of lectures and tutorials which include synthetic presentations of various theological themes. Students work under the direction of an individual supervisor in the preparation of a major integrative essay.
