THEO 701 Integration Project and THEO 702 Thesis Project purpose:
Requirements for the Master of Arts in Theology degree include completing either a capstone Integration Project (3 cr. hrs.), or Thesis (6 cr. hrs.), normally in the last semester of the degree program. The project/thesis assists the student in integrating various foundational and elected courses within the program with the past, present, and future ecclesial leadership role/ministerial context of the students. Students develop the project/thesis using the particular interest or emphasis that has been identified and has been supported throughout the course of study. This culminating assignment is intended to foster an internalized appropriation of the foundational doctrines of the Church in a way that relates them to Christian life and ecclesial leadership. The Project/Thesis is intended to help develop the skills necessary for sound theological and ecclesial/ministerial judgment, and promoting the integration of theory and practice. The project/thesis is intended to afford the student an opportunity to make a contribution to the wider community, (e.g., related to social justice, spiritual renewal, education and/or formation, pastoral administration or pastoral care); students will demonstrate in a structured format, the ability to articulate, exercise and apply the skills and knowledge acquired during the degree program.
