Graduate Teaching and Supervision
I regularly teach for the MSt and the MPhil in Modern Theology and am happy to consider applicants for these courses.
Apart from individually supervised shorter essays and a dissertation, these courses involve two seminar series: ‘Methods and Styles in Modern Theology’ in Michaelmas Term and ‘Doctrine and Doctrines’ in Hilary Term.
For details about syllabi and exams see the Faculty website.
I consider applications for DPhil students in all my research areas.
I currently supervise 10 DPhil students.
I offer a termly graduate conference (Graduate Day) at which graduate students can present and discuss their current work in progress.
