You will learn through the provision of module documents and by engaging in a variety of Study Activities. You will have the assistance of a module-specific tutor, available through email or Skype contact (as agreed) and the Programme Leader who is always there to assist if the study experience gets tough.
As an entirely self-paced programme, you can set, in agreement with the Programme Leader, your own deadlines for submission of assignments, subject to an overall completion date of 3 years. Assessments vary across modules but include essays, book reviews, and presentations. You will keep a Study Journal through the modules that allows you to respond to the activities and to reflect on your own development and skills in biblical interpretation.
Finally, you will engage in a research project, the dissertation, which enables you to fully explore an area of interest that has relevance to hermeneutics.
