This one-year part-time course covers a comprehensive range of theological subjects, and will appeal to people interested in furthering their theological understanding. The programme fulfils all the requirements set out by the Teaching Council of Ireland for teaching religious education at post-primary level.
The programme offers a foundation in Theological Studies to students who hold a primary degree in another discipline. For those who already hold a recognised teacher-training qualification, it fulfills all of the requirements set out by the Teaching Council of Ireland for teaching religious education at post-primary level. On successful completion of the programme, students who achieve a Second Class Honours Grade I, or better, may apply for admission to the Masters Degree in Theology.
Core subjects (Systematic Theology, Moral Theology, Scripture, and Foundations of Worship) will be taught on Monday and Wednesday evenings.
Modules in World Religions, History of Christianity, and Religious Education will be taught on the 6 Saturdays throughout the year.
