The Department of Fundamental and Dogmatic Theology is organising eight research seminars, each session focusing on a particular theme within the area of Systematic Theology.

Seminars shall be held on a monthly basis.  Students reading for a taught or research postgraduate programme of studies (MA students), as well as academic staff members, are strongly encouraged to attend these sessions.

During the seminars  papers shall be read on a research project undertaken by an invited speaker (mainly postgraduate or doctoral candidates, as well as  visiting scholars or staff members), followed by questions and discussion.

Research seminars are considered as an important part of postgraduate training and a key context for fostering academic scholarship, offering opportunities to learn about new developments in the field, engage in dialogue with guest speakers, and expand knowledge and skills through group discussion.


The dates for the next seminars are:

·         18th Jan 2017
