School of Philosophy & Theology, Sydney Campus
Flexibility is the key to the Master of Liberal Arts (Philosophy and Theology). Not only do you get to choose from a wide range of courses, but the teaching modes are also highly flexible. Designed to suit your schedule, options include intensive full day classes, evening tutorials, and weekend tuition. Having enrolled in this program you may later choose to take one of the many exit pathways available in order to pursue a particular topic of interest.
The program is open to applicants who have a recognised Bachelor's degree (Level 7 AQF) in any discipline.
Designed to be completed over 1.5 years of full-time study, the Master of Liberal Arts allows you to study subjects from a wide range, particularly in philosophy and theology. Our Master of Liberal Arts (Philosophy and Theology) is designed as an entry award for which various exit pathways are available. Options include a Graduate Certificate in Liberal Arts or Religious Education, a Graduate Diploma in Philosophy or Theology, a Master of Arts in Philosophy or Theology.
The program consists of 12 courses. Every student takes Research Methods in Philosophy and Theology, which is designed to help you to see how philosophy and theology work together, and to equip you to undertake your personalised research project. Then you can choose seven more courses from a range of subjects in philosophy and theology, perhaps working toward a specialisation in either discipline or in Catholic Leadership. Finally, you will develop a supervised research project (worth three courses of your degree), in keeping with your interests and future career path.
