TM 513 Theological Synthesis (Fall: 3)
Department permission required.
Qualified students in other programs may enroll as space allows. Students
register for TM 501 spring semester.
This is a required six-credit course for M.Div. students in their second
year of residency and presumes a background in scripture and historical
theology. It is designed to mediate an integrated and holistic understanding
of Christian faith in terms of the foundational doctrines. The course combines
reading, lectures, written reports, and discussion groups. Students conclude
the course by writing a short synthesis of the faith in collaboration with
a faculty mentor which serves as the basis of a one-hour oral examination
by members of the faculty.
