This MA is assessed by a combination of a dissertation mark (33%) and course work (67%).
Summative assessment includes essays, portfolios, and a 15,000-word dissertation.
Formative assessment is an integral part of the teaching and learning programme and is related to oral presentations and drafts of summative assignments. On-line resources will also be used for discussing progress/difficulties and getting feedback.
Attendance is encouraged at departmental Research Seminars, which offer a rich variety of formats and themes throughout the academic year. There is a Faith and Globalisation Research Seminar series which will be a requirement to all MA students, thus giving them the possibility to meet key researchers or practitioners, become aware of recent developments in this field of study, provide an opportunity for meeting with other fellow MA students in an environment conducive to discussion and learning, as well as mutual acquaintance.
