The Faculty of Theology and Philosophy's Short Course in Theology series begins at the Strathfiled Campus next week with the focus on Abrahamic Perspectives on Mercy.
Want to learn more about Christian faith in an educated and accessible way? Interested in exploring theology but aren't able to commit to a degree? Are you teaching Religious Education, or in a Catholic school, and need professional development?
ACU's Short Course program is just the thing! Suitable for parishioners, teachers, youth groups, university staff and students, and the general public.
Explore the heart of Christianity and consider questions important to faith in a relaxed group setting. Our short courses enable you to learn from ACU's leading theology and philosophy scholars.
For the Year of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis, this Short Course will explore the understanding of mercy in the Jewish, Christian and Muslim traditions.
This Short Course will be held on Wednesday evenings in May.
