This Masters in Christian Theology provides students with the opportunity to gain an in-depth knowledge of core issues in Christian Theology and to develop skills of critical thinking in relation to them. Students are introduced to historical scholarship and to rigorous contemporary theological investigation.
Its focus, on pluralist and critically constructive theological studies of the highest academic standing, will allow students to contribute to public debates on theological issues in contemporary societies.
The M.Phil. is currently taught by Loyola staff in the School of Religion and coordinated by Prof. Fáinche Ryan, Director of the Loyola Institute.
The M.Phil. is delivered full-time over one year (12 months) or part-time over two years. Lectures will normally be held on Monday and Thursday evenings. Some elective modules may be held during the day.
There are a number of scholarships available. See www.tcd.ie/loyola-institute for details.
