Gazette 30 June 2016

The regulations for the MPhil in Theology previously stipulated that, as a part of the Christian Doctrine course ‘Issues in Theology with special reference to Theology from 1780 to the Present’, candidates were required to sit two timed written examinations. For the second timed written examination (A.2), the candidate was required to choose one paper from three options: Modern Theology, Theology and Modern European Thought from 1780 to the Present, and Theology and Literature from 1780 to the Present. Candidates were also required to write submitted essay(s) (B.) on a topic or topics that fell within the same three areas.

It was agreed to combine the three options under the single heading of Modern Theology to better align the assessment structure with the teaching available in this area.

See the Humanities Divisional Board notice in the Gazette for further details.

Gazette 16 June 2016

The regulations for the MPhil in Theology (New Testament) previously stipulated that all three short essays must fall into “one of” the following areas: 1) New Testament Theology; (2) Varieties of Judaism, 200 B.C. – C.E. 200; (3) the History and Principles of Biblical Study. It was agreed to simplify matters by replacing “one of” by “any of”. See the Humanities Board notice in the Gazette for further details.
