Under the new regulations for the Master of Arts, the Master of Theological Studies, and the Master of Divinity, students must complete a capstone unit of at least 24 points value.
Capstone units are designed to be undertaken in the final stages of the degree program, and prompt the student to gather together the learning achieved in the degree. This may be focussed in a research essay, an integrative seminar, a ministry project, or a theological synthesis.
This capstone unit provides an opportunity for a student to integrate the knowledge and skills in the various disciplines of theology acquired during their course of study, and to apply these in a substantial focussed research project. The student will be expected to demonstrate advanced skills in exegesis, historical and theological methodologies as appropriate to the research topic, and skilled use of electronic databases, journals and other scholarly literature. As the capstone of a master’s programme, the student’s work will display a critical awareness of issues pertaining to the study of theology as an academic discipline.
