Key areas of study
All students on the MA in Contemporary Catholicism take three compulsory modules (Research Skills; Reading Seminar, and The Catholic Church in a Postmodern World). The Research Skills module ensures that you are equipped with the specialised skills needed to carry out research in the field of theology and religious studies. The Reading Seminar focuses on key issues in the study of Catholicism. Students also select three modules that meet their own research interests.
The 15,000-word dissertation allows you to pursue an independent research topic in-depth.
Students on the MA in Contemporary Catholicism will also be encouraged to participate in the Digby Stuart Research Centre’s activities, including fortnightly research seminars and other events.
