Areas of Specialisation
Bible and Culture
Continuing within an established and thriving tradition, the Faculty of Theology considers the study of Scripture as one of its areas of specialisation. Approached from the angle of exegesis and hermeneutics, the study of the Bible at DUC aims to understand the biblical texts as they are in themselves in a technical way, and further, unpack the resonance of these texts within the Tradition. Ultimately, the research seeks to identify various insights that can respond and dialogue with contemporary questions today.
Ethics and Anthropology
Within a theological framework, this area of specialisation seeks to bring about a deeper understanding of the human person and its actions. The research currently pursues the following areas: 1) To study the contribution of the theological reflection within bioethics and clinical ethics; 2) To explore the ethical and epistemological practices in health care; 3) To deepen the contribution of spirituality in the practices of care and accompaniment in the health care field; 4) To develop a Christian anthropology considering contemporary challenges.
Representing the Canadian ethos, each program is offered fully in French or English through optional courses and research seminars. As an official bilingual university, presentations, dissertations, and any evaluation may be submitted in either language. Our students are enabled to discover the various academic schools of thought, the DUC environment acts as a converging space between both French and English publications from across the world.
