Study Theological Ethics in Aberdeen, Scotland [Updated]
This is a re-post with updated links.
Greetings readers. Since all of us here at Out of Bounds were brought together at the University of Aberdeen it should be no surprise if we happen to offer shameless promotion for the school from time to time. This is one of those times.
The following invitation to study Theological Ethics at King’s College Aberdeen comes to you from one of the new faculty there: Mike Mawson. If you know anyone for whom this might be a good fit, spread the word. We all had a great experience studying there.
We are pleased to announce a new one-year Master’s in Theological Ethics degree at the University of Aberdeen. Aberdeen’s department of Divinity is currently one of the top-ranked theology programs in the UK, and recent appointments in the areas of Systematic Theology and Theological Ethics have strengthened the department still further. The Theological Ethics area emphasizes fundamental texts and thinkers in the Christian tradition for engaging contemporary issues and debates. Click here for more information.
If you have questions or are interested in applying to the MTh degree feel free to contact Professor Bernd Wannenwetsch, Dr Brian Brock or Dr Michael Mawson. We will also be happy to meet with prospective students at the American Academy of Religion meeting (in Chicago in November 2012) or the Society of Christian Ethics meeting (in Chicago in January 2013).
In addition, we would be happy to discuss funding options for both prospective Master’s and doctoral students. Among other things, there will be doctoral funding in the two following two interdisciplinary collaborations: ‘Normativity – Nature, Narrative and Nihilism’ and ‘Transitional Justice, Peace and Reconciliation.’ We would be interested in supporting Welcome Trust applications for students hoping to work in the area of bioethics. Finally, we are willing to support external funding applications for especially strong proposals. Click here for additional information on funding.
