Theology, Ethics and Public Issues (THEM128)

30 credits

This module will focus on the interaction between theology and matters of current social and political importance. Attention will initially be given to introducing students to the range of approaches to this subject currently reflected in research taking place in Exeter. Focus will then be given to developing an in-depth project supervised by one member of staff. Such projects may include examinations of theology’s relationships with criminal justice, international law, sexuality and gender, scientific developments and changing modes of mass-communication.
