Extramural study requires devotion and ongoing dedication. This is so much easier to sustain when you enjoy the process, like a favourite hobby, and when you don't feel alone. After nearly 20 years providing academic correspondence courses in theology, we have learned how to make home study more collegiate, more supportive and more successful for you.
That's why our distance tutors keep in contact with course participants during the whole course process... with ongoing help, comments and encouragement.
This course will introduce students to the questions: "What are Christian feminist theologies?" and "Why are they important?" by looking at feminisms and a little of their histories, and by considering the perspectives of women with very diverse life experience and relationships to God, church and creation. Student will be encouraged to develop their own feminist theological perspectives within the context of Aotearoa New Zealand.
