With Heart, Mind and Hands, We Serve Professionally
The Faculty is one of the leading theological institutions in Africa and is known for its quality research, relevant teaching and learning programmes, and community engagement, especially through its Centre.
The Faculty has more scholars who have received National Research Foundation (NRF) ratings than any other South African faculty of theology and annually produces hundreds of peer-reviewed articles published in highly accredited national and international journals. It undertakes cutting-edge research on relevant, contextual, interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary levels. It acknowledges that such work cannot be done in ivory towers and aims to engage in life-changing and transforming research that makes a difference in communities and society in general.
As far as teaching and learning are concerned, the Faculty continues to pursue excellence by seeking to address current issues and struggles, such as decolonisation and Africanisation, especially in relation to the establishment of sustainable cities and communities. We use diff erent methods in our instruction to encourage critical thinking, investigation, interactive and participatory learning, alternate forms of assessment and the use of technology. Furthermore, our teaching modules are directed to incorporate non-theological modules to enable students to also train for careers outside of Theology. We have well-qualified, experienced and dedicated lecturers who are committed to assisting students at all levels of study.
On behalf of the faculty, I take this opportunity to extend a warm and wholehearted welcome to prospective students and wish success to our current students!
