Theology and Oriental Studies - Course Outline
The University organizes classes and lectures. For Theology subjects and Oriental Studies subjects, a major part of the week is spent in private study in preparation for tutorials that are typically held with college tutors once a week. Subjects that require a great amount of language work are taught for the most part in classes, which can meet three times a week or more.
Follow the course in Theology (refer to entry for Theology). In third term, all students take one Theology paper, no Oriental Studies teaching.
