Aims and Objectives
The Master of Arts (Aquinas Studies) provides students with the opportunity to:
• Study the philosophical and theological thought of St Thomas Aquinas at postgraduate level by engaging with primary sources as well as historical and contemporary scholarship on Aquinas' thought.
• Explore the historical, contextual and linguistic background to Aquinas' thought.
• Recognise the unity of faith and reason in Aquinas' thought, using a method which involves cross-cultural dialogue and is relevant for today.
• Contribute meaningfully to philosophical and theological scholarship on the thought of Thomas Aquinas.
This MA (Aquinas Studies) by blended learning is particularly suitable for those who cannot attend classes regularly. The modules are delivered by suitably qualified and experienced theologians and philosophers who are specialists in their disciplines. The MA provides an excellent foundation for further studies, teaching, pastoral and retreat work.
An option exists to exit with a Graduate Diploma in Arts (Aquinas Studies).
