Offered in Winter 2013  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2011 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course explores the distinctive contents, methods, and  interests of traditional theological disciplines (biblical studies, church history, pastoral and systematic theology and ethics) as well as their interrelationships: What does each subdiscipline count as evidence?; How does it construct knowledge?; What cognate disciplines might extend its insights?; How does it engage the challenges, fears, and hope for the "globalized" world of the 21st century? Students will explore the task of theological research and writing through all its steps. Attention will be given to the use of scholarly research software and bibliographic tools, identification of appropriate methodology, and the value of interdisciplinarity. Lectures and seminars.  Required of all MA students.
