CSU's Master of Theology (Honours) course offers students the opportunity to undertake a thesis by research in the Faculty's priority areas of New Testament studies, church history, theology, or mission and pastoral studies.
The research will show awareness of contemporary debate and result in a distinct contribution to theological knowledge.
Minimum submission time for full-time students is one year and for part-time students is two years. The maximum time allowed is four years for part-time and two years for full-time enrolment. Refer to Doctor of Philosophy listing.
For each 8 point subject at CSU, students should normally expect to spend between 140-160 hours engaged in the specified learning and assessment activities (such as attending lectures or residential schools, assigned readings, tutorial assistance, individual or group research/study, forum activity, workplace learning, assignments or examinations). The student workload for some subjects may vary from these norms as a result of approved course design.
Students will be assessed on the basis of completed assignments, examinations, workplace learning, or other methods as outlined in specific subject outlines.
Where applicable, students are responsible for travel and accommodation costs involved in workplace learning experiences, or attending residential schools (distance education students).
Expectations relating to academic, workplace learning, time and cost requirements for specific subjects are provided in the subject abstracts and in course materials.
