The subjects of the Grad Cert in Theological Studies (with RE Specialization) will continue to be those mandated by the Catholic Education Office for teachers requiring RE accreditation.
In the case of the MSacred Theology there will be no change to the course load.
Students who have not completed the full requirements of their current course before the 30 June 2016 will be transferred into the new course in the relevant specialization with all existing subject credits.
Academic Testamur will show the new course name. When referring to the qualification in a resume or CV, the qualification can be shown as: e.g. Grad Cert in Theological Studies (with a specialization in RE) or MA(Theology) (with a specialization in Art, Liturgy and Culture).
Students who will not complete their studies curriculum for their current course before 30 June 2016 and do not wish to transfer to the new courses are requested to inform the Registrar in writing or by email before Friday 13 November 2015. A nil response will be assumed as acceptance of the new arrangements.
