Systematic Theology, Thesis, in-depth course , 15 ECTS Credits
COURSE CATEGORY   Fristående kurs
MAIN FIELD OF STUDY   Religious Studies - RKA
  COURSE CODE   790G68
On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- account for a chosen speciality in systematic theology,
- formulate an issue in systematic theology, and examine it independently in the form of an essay, by means of the theories and method traditions of the discipline,
- search, interpret and critically review materials relevant for the examination of the issue,
- analyse, assess and discuss others' thesis plans in the subject area.
On the basis of the theory and method traditions of the discipline, a problem within Christian religious view is covered independently. The results are presented in writing and defended at a thesis seminar.
The course also includes discussing other students' thesis plans and completed theses.
The independent thesis work is supported by supervision, introductory seminars, mid-way reviews where thesis plans are discussed, and final essay seminars. All students are expected to prepare for and participate in the seminars, in an active and constructive way.
The course is examined through compulsory seminars where thesis plans are analysed and discussed, the own essay is defended and, normally, a review of another essay is carried out.

Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course two times are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.

Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.
