The postgraduate module focuses on understandings of missiology in key historical and contemporary contexts. It aims to provide an understanding of missiology as a theological discipline. Topics studied include scriptural interpretations of mission, how these lay foundations for diverse and shifting models of mission within the Patristic and modern periods, and contrasting theologies of home and overseas mission. Students should be prepared to think reflexively, as well as critically engaging with historical and theological readings of mission. The course is open to all but will be particularly applicable to those interested in developing critical and reflective thinking in practice.
