Master of Theology

Theology

at

Cardiff University (SHARE),

St Michael’s College and

the South Wales Baptist College

2015–16

A Cardiff University Degree, delivered in partnership with St Michael’s College

and South Wales Baptist College.

**** Possible Changes ****

All students are hereby notifed that the modules advertised or referred to in this handbook

can be changed or withdrawn both before and after selection. Furthermore, the schedule of the

modules may be liable to variation and change for any reason, including loss or lack of availability of academic staff and insuffcient take up of modules. Staff, too, may be changed.

Cardiff University, South Wales Baptist College and St Michael’s College accept no responsibility for any such changes, withdrawals or re-scheduling of modules and students select them at their own risk.

**** Accuracy **** In an ideal world, Programme Directors would have the time to go through a document like this at least once a year and ensure that every single word is utterly correct, precise, unambiguous and still relevant. In the real world we live in, this simply doesn’t happen. It makes for a complicated situation where staff want to tell you to check what’s in the Handbook, but sometimes different members of staff/faculty have different assumptions about what’s in the Handbook, what it says and how it is to be interpreted. A particular problem that arises is caused by the fact that the frst draft of this document was prepared from the MTh Chaplaincy Studies Handbook, and at a few points information that relates to the distinctive structure of that Programme appears, even though it should have been rooted out.

In other words, the vast majority of what is in here is reliable and correct; a few corners and odd statements might well not be. While every effort has been made to ensure that everything in this document is accurate, the possibility of omissions, oversights and slip-ups inevitably remains. For all these, the Director of Postgraduate Training (St Michael’s College) offers his apologies and craves your indulgence and understanding. Those nicely pointed out to him will be readily corrected for the future.

You can also discuss matters with the Director of Postgraduate Training, Dr John Wilks, on 029 2083 8004 or john.wilks@stmichaels.ac.uk.

Introducing MTh Theology The MTh in Theology is a completely revised course, launched in 2012, and organised in a novel way that integrates individually-directed personal study with day learning together with other practitioners. It is a Master’s course at Cardiff University. Originally offered just in Practical Theology, it was expanded in 2013 to offer additional pathways in Biblical Studies, Christian Doctrine and Church History.

We will be asking you to comment on your experience at the end of most modules throughout your period of enrolment with us so that we can improve all aspects of the MTh and ensure that it remains relevant. However, if for any reason you fnd that you are not enjoying or getting as much out of the course as you want or need then please discuss your concerns with a tutor as soon as you can. They will also be able to help you with specifc queries and information that is not contained in this book.

MTh Theology – Pathways and iii.

–  –  –

Overall structure To obtain the MTh Theology (Practical Theology pathway), students must complete 120 credits of taught modules and a 20k word dissertation. There are two compulsory modules, a set of modules from which you must choose at least two, and a set of further modules that can be used to complete the necessary 120. (NB All modules are worth 20 credits unless indicated otherwise. Modules in italics will not be available in 2013–14) Compulsory core for all students: RTT525, Research Methods for Theology  Compulsory core for this pathway: RTT150, Principles of Practical Theology  Modules distinctive to this pathway; students must complete at least two of these, but  may complete three or four o RTT144, Continuity and Change: Ministry in Contemporary Society o RTT145, Faith, Belief and Spirituality o RTT146, Contours of Christian Theology o RTT147, Contemporary Theologies of Mission o RTT149, Bible in Ministry o RTT143, Independent Learning Project o RTT151, Critical Refection on Practice o RTT148, Beginning Chaplaincy o RTT202, Facilitating Moral Debate o RTT205, The Context of Chaplaincy Further optional modules that student can use to complete their 120 credits (taking  two, one or none) o RTT519, New Testament in Social Perspective o RTT520, Exegesis of Biblical Texts: Romans o RTT529, Out of Babylon: Old Testament Theology o RTT530, The Horrors We Bless: Old Testament Texts o RTT518, Theologies of Liberation o RTT531, Biography as Theology o European Reformations o Nonconformity in England and Wales o Evangelical Revivals in England and Wales

–  –  –

Summer Students work on their dissertations through May to mid September.

Practical Theology: part-time (two year programme, 2014 intake) You completed four modules last year: probably RTT152, 150, 144 and 147. You therefore have two modules to complete, almost certainly in the frst semester.

–  –  –

Second year, frst semester In the frst semester, students will complete 40 more credits. We will start the process of establishing the precise list of those modules to be offered for 2016–17 before the Easter break, and we will start by seeking initial indications of your preferences. Experience suggests the process will be tougher to agree than that!

Second year, second semester & summer Students work on their dissertations through January to mid September.

Practical Theology: part-time (three years or more programme) Students should normally complete 20 credits each semester; the University requires you to complete 40 credits in your frst academic year. Our comments indicate both what is normal, and what is possible for particular situations.

–  –  –

Second year onwards Your programme after this will largely depend on your particular circumstances. The typical student will take RTT150 in the frst semester, and then RTT147 in the second. We will start the process of establishing the precise list of those modules to be offered for 2015–16 before the Easter break, and we will start by seeking initial indications of your preferences. Experience suggests the process will be tougher to agree than that!

Biblical Studies Overall structure To obtain the MTh Theology (Biblical Studies pathway), students must complete 120 credits of taught modules and a 20k word dissertation. There are two compulsory modules, a set of modules from which you must choose at least two, and a set of further modules that can be used to complete the necessary 120. You should ensure that you complete at least one of the explicitly OT and one of the NT modules as well. Though it is too diffcult to get the University computer system to accommodate that, it is part of our expectation of the biblical studies stream.

Though modules in the biblical languages are not yet available, module RTT143, Independent Learning Project, can be used for this purpose. (NB All modules are worth 20 credits unless indicated otherwise. Modules in italics will not be available in 2014–15) Experience from 2013– 14 advises against it, though! For reasons, chat with the Programme Leader.
