About this course
The Master of Philosophy is a research degree in a theologically related area. It is expected that the candidate in pursuing their research with independence and intellectual freedom will make an incisive, original, and substantial contribution to the discipline(s) pursued. This will result in a written thesis that will contribute to the advancement of academic knowledge, methodologies, and skills associated with the area of study undertaken by the researcher.
The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) is an AQF level 9 award. It meets the specifications for a Master’s Degree (Research) set by the Australian Qualifications Framework.
The Master of Philosophy is undertaken by research and thesis alone. It provides the opportunity for candidates to embark on a significant piece of research, which investigates a theologically related topic in a systematic and comprehensive manner that is not available in coursework programs.
