Intercultural Theology and Interreligious Studies explores the complex realities of intercultural and interreligious relationships. Participants draw on a wide and interdisciplinary range of scholarship - integrating both emerging and established fields such as World Christianity Studies, Comparative Theology, Intercultural Ethics, Ecumenics, Political Science and Religious Studies. A choice of four module tracks enables students to specialize in one of the fields of study that - together - constitute Intercultural Theology and Interreligious Studies. Not all of the following modules may be available in any given year. Students are assessed on a total of six modules, three core and three optional, plus dissertation. The course offers four distinctive tracks, within which students may opt for thematic concentrations of optional modules.
Track A: Christian Ecumenical Theologies Core modules:
plus Concentration 1: Faith, Order and Unity
or Concentration 2: Ecumenical Theology as Intercultural Engagement
Track B: World Christianity and Intercultural Theology Core modules:
plus Concentration 1: World Christianity Studies
or Concentration 2: Intercultural Theology
or Concentration 3: Crosscultural Ethics and Ministry
Track C: Comparative Theology and Interreligious Studies Core modules:

Theology. or Concentration 2: Study of Religions’ Interrelations
or Concentration 3: World Christianity in Interreligious Contexts
Track D: Religions and Ethics in a Pluralist World Core modules:

Teaching takes places in Dublin over two terms. A one term, non-degree course of study is available which is ideal for those on sabbatical, or who prefer a shorter period of study. There is also the option of attending single modules. Modules from the M.Phil. in International Peace Studies and the M.Phil. in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation are also open to students on the M.Phil. in Intercultural Theology and Interreligious Studies. Students seeking to be assessed for their work on a module in either of the two other programmes must first secure the permission of the relevant course coordinators. Dissertation: A research dissertation (15,000 – 20,000 words) to be supervised by an appropriate member of staff and to be submitted by 16 August.
Applicants should normally have a second class honours degree (or equivalent such as a GPA of 3.2) or higher in Theology or Religious Studies or an equivalent degree in a cognate discipline. Students not meeting these criteria may be considered at the discretion of the Dean of Graduate Studies.
