Description

The subject areas of philosophy and theology overlap in many significant ways, both with regard to philosophers who have asked questions of the nature of existence and agency, and to theologians who have written theology with a firm eye on the development of the various philosophical traditions. The MA (Philosophy and Theology) provides an opportunity for the analytic study of the metaphysical, ethical and theological traditions that have shaped contemporary thinking. Students work with international scholars to acquire knowledge of chosen areas of interest, and develop research-associated methods and skills.
