Ethics, 7.5 HE credits

This module provides an introduction to central ethical concepts and theories. Value theories and normative theories are also covered, as well as traditions within theological ethics and moral philosophy. Studies of the theory of ethics are linked to current ethical application fields, such as policy, care and work.

Systematic Theology, 7.5 HE credits
Central themes in the systematic-theological debate, for example interpretations of the Christian faith, exegesis issues, meaning and examples of imitation, as well as secularisation.

Some different ways to design and argue for a systematic theology and the problems that are then made relevant, for example regarding the possibilities to integrate Christian faith with everyday experiences and with knowledge or regarding how to interpret and express the vocative character of the Christian message and its political and social implications.
The teaching takes the form of lectures and seminars. In the module Ethics, the focus is on the students' processing, in groups, of the central issues of ethics.
The written assignments that the students produce underlie discussions in seminars.
All modules are assessed on the basis of the student's results both on an individual written assignment, and on one or several written assignments that are presented in seminars. These seminars are therefore compulsory.

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.
