THCP304 - Integrated Theological Studies B
Prerequisites At least 160cp towards the program
Teaching Organisation The unit involves 150 hours of focused learning, or the equivalent of 10 hours per week for 15 weeks. The total includes formally structured learning activities such as lectures, tutorials, online learning, video-conferencing, or supervision. The remaining hours typically involve reading, research, and the preparation of tasks for assessment.
This unit will normally be taken after 160 cp of a student's enrolment in the Bachelor of Theology. In this unit, after appropriate consultation, students involve themselves in a particular area of Christian activity or concern (eg Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, groups involved in spirituality, liturgy, social justice, the arts, care for youth, the elderly, the suffering or disadvantaged). This involvement is both practical and reflective, in accord with the demands of a pastoral theological methodology. The practical experience of the focus of Christian concern is balanced with study and reflection in the light of theoretical perspectives. The unit will include a module on working with children, young people and vulnerable adults that will focus on responding to concerns and strategies to keep ourselves and others safe and support children, young people and vulnerable adults.
