Undertaking study at Master's level is quite different from studying at undergraduate level or doing doctoral research. This practical handbook is written by the leader of one of the most successful MA programmes in theology in the UK. It caters for the needs of both undergraduates moving on to study at postgraduate level or of those who are returning to study after years out of education. While there are many generic study skills handbooks for postgraduates, this book is aimed specifically at those studying at Master's level in theology.
Doing an MA in Theology is a serious commitment of time and effort. This book will enable you to get the most out that investment leading to personal enrichment as well as academic success. An essential starting point and on-going source of inspiration. -- Helen Cameron, Oxford Centre for Ecclesiology and Practical Theology, Ripon College Cuddesdon Beginning Masters level theological study and wanting to know what you are letting yourself in for? Drawing on her wide experience of postgraduate theology programmes, Zoe Bennett steers her readers through its joys and pitfalls. Whether for crafting skills in reflective practice or developing a thesis proposal, or whether for acquiring a scholarly voice or using library resources well, this is an essential guide for students and staff alike. -- David Allen, The Queen's Foundation, Birmingham Giving crystal clear guidance to students starting out to 'master' theology, this book will reassure them about their capacity for the task. It explains what's involved clearly and succinctly, and lays out how to proceed with such calmness and sense of order that the challenge, while not underplayed, appears perfectly manageable. The book is itself a model of the kind of good clear writing, research, presentation and exposition that, as a dissertation, would attract a high distinction. It will be a great help to both master's students and teachers. -- James Sweeney, Heythrop College, University of London.
