Subject Description
This subject introduces students to the study and teaching of theology. Theology is an interdisciplinary subject which seeks to critically understand the sacred texts, beliefs, practices and worldviews of religions throughout history, and as they present in the current context, including in diverse societies, politics, and popular culture. In this subject, the discipline will be introduced in these broad terms. Students will focus on Catholic theology, its place in Catholic schools and subsequent pedagogical approaches for teachers of Catholic theology.

Extra Information
Subject Objectives:
On completion of this subject students will be able to: 1. Define the discipline of theology, its methodologies, and its role alongside other disciplines in the current context. 2. Analyse in depth the theology of one major religious tradition, including its core principles and teachings, historical development, and contemporary discussions and debates within it. 3. Apply the principles and methods of theology to a critical study of the presence of religion in the current context, with a special focus on issues of relevance to the Australian context. 4.
