About this course

In today’s complex and complicated world, Christians need to bring together various disciplines and skills so as to be able to first, understand the challenges, and then secondly to respond with Christian grace and wisdom. With this deeper and fuller understanding then, comes the ability to live well, and to be his witnesses.

 To do this, an interdisciplinary approach is needed, which will include the following dimensions:

  1. Contextual: to develop awareness and sensitivity to key issues that concern life in contemporary Singapore by identifying and analysing case studies taken from the local context.
  2. Integrative: to integrate theological studies and vocational life by offering basic frameworks of thought.
  3. Theological: to facilitate socio-cultural analysis that is guided by biblical and theological reflection.
