Taking individual modules

In 2019, for the first time, we’re offering three Oak Hill modules as short courses, to encourage more people to benefit from the training we offer. The three modules open up the areas of apologetics, the doctrine of justification, and global theology and practice. You can take these modules as an auditor, which means you will attend lectures but not be required to submit any assessments. Auditors do not receive any mark, credits or feedback at the end of the course.

Applying to audit modules in Term 3, 2018/19

We are offering three modules in Term 3 of the 2018/19 academic year, available for audit. These are:

DW1.2: APOLOGETICS 1

• Tutor:
Dan Strange
When does it run? Mondays 10.15am – 12noon (2 lecture slots per week in total)
How much does it cost? £223
Module credit weighting: 5 credits

What does the module cover? This is a Level 4 (CertHE) module offering an apology for apologetics, that is, the defence and articulation of the Christian faith. It surveys different schools of apologetics and examines some typical objections to the Christian faith, focusing on the presuppositional apologetic method and the importance of worldview.
Who is this module for? This module is appropriate for any auditor with an interest in theology and apologetics. Although it builds on foundations laid in DW1.1 (Christian Worldview and Anthropology), it is accessible to those with a basic background in Bible, theology or ministry.
How do I participate as an auditor? Auditors in this module may choose simply to listen to lectures and discussions or to participate, at the tutor’s discretion and invitation, in classroom discussions and seminars. Module readings will normally be available to auditors through the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) or in paper format. Auditors will not have any library access.

BD4.1 JUSTIFICATION IN THE BIBLE AND IN CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE

• Tutors:
Chris Stead and Matthew Bingham
When does it run? Mondays 10.15am – 12noon and Fridays 10.15am-12noon (4 lecture slots per week in total)
How much does it cost? £890
Module credit weighting: 20 credits

What does the module cover? This is a Level 6 (BA) module offering an account of the doctrine of justification which models the integration of theological disciplines. Exegetical, historical, pastoral, apologetic and doxological aspects of the doctrine are examined. Various accounts of justification are compared and contrasted and attention is given to applying and communicating the doctrine in contemporary cultural and ministry contexts.
Who is this module for? This module is appropriate for auditors with some background in biblical studies, doctrine and ministry. The creditors in the classroom will have spent significant time building a biblical, historical and theological framework that they will bring to the discussions at hand. Class discussions will operate on the assumption of familiarity with key biblical texts and the broad sweep of church history and doctrine.
How do I participate as an auditor? Auditors in this module may choose simply to listen to lectures and discussions or to participate, at the tutors’ discretion and invitation, in classroom discussions and seminars. Module readings will normally be available to auditors through the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) or in paper format. Auditors will not have any library access.

DW4.2 GLOBAL THEOLOGY AND PRACTICE

• Tutor:
Keith Ferdinando
When does it run? Thursdays 10.15am-12noon, and 1.40pm-4.35pm (5 lecture slots per week in total)
How much does it cost? £890
Module credit weighting: 20 credits

What does the module cover? This is a Level 6 (BA) module offering a biblical, historical and cross-cultural basis for evaluating contextualised theology and ecclesiology in both British and global contexts. Cross-cultural theological and church-planting methods will be examined from the point of view of practitioners and with reference to contemporary missiological concepts. Theological contributions from Asian, African and Latin American cultures will provide students with the opportunity to reflect on patterns for doing theology and for church life within specific contexts.
Who is this module for? This module is appropriate for auditors with some background in doctrine, history and cross-cultural theology or missiology. The creditors in the classroom will have spent significant time building a foundation of hermeneutical and theological method. Class discussions will therefore be conducted on this basis and will also assume familiarity with and reflection on class readings to be completed prior to class sessions.
How do I participate as an auditor? Auditors in this module may choose simply to listen to lectures and discussions or to participate, at the tutor’s discretion and invitation, in classroom discussions and seminars. In either case, auditors will be expected to have completed the assigned readings beforehand. Module readings will normally be available to auditors through the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) or in paper format. Auditors will not have any library access.
