    are often interested in topics connected with their own social cultural or religious setting We have noticed some potential difficulties that may accompany such interests and thus we are attempt here to identify them and deal with them constructively These difficulties may come to light during course work or in preparing for Qualifying Examinations or in developing the dissertation proposal or in writing the dissertation itself We hope that any problems can be identified well in advance 1 The subject matter to be dealt with may be massive in scope This may be because it is not easy to separate one issue or one social institution from others It may be because there is not yet a body of research drawing scattered materials together or analyzing the distinct themes or problems We must emphasize the importance of gauging both the feasibility of a project and its potential contribution to research These can be achieved more readily if the project is related to already existing lines of research developing them farther or in new ways 2 The project or the dissertation may be programmatic in character Some international students are interested in developing and arguing a construtive position a theology or an ethic or an ecclesiastical program for their particular situation A programmatic dissertation may not only be massive in scope but require extensive argumentation It is important that a dissertation of this character take criticisms and alternative positions into account 3 Many aspects of the work may be outside the expertise of any faculty members within the University In such a case the Graduate School always has the right to ask that some other line of research be undertaken more in keeping with the faculty s own research experience But we try to accommodate to students interests Faculty members have

  • Taking two years to complete the Master of Arts in Religion | Degrees | Graduate Department of Religion | Vanderbilt University
    of Arts in Religion The Graduate School requires a minimum of 30 hours of formal course work plus the writing of a thesis for the M A degree A student who comes into the M A program with insufficient college preparation in Religion may also be advised to do additional work The experience of the Graduate Department of Religion indicates that students enroll in the M A program for a variety of reasons For some it is a means of being introduced to the field of religion or to a special area within it For others it is an opportunity to explore in greater depth a field of study with which the student has already become acquainted For others it is a way of preparing for Ph D study either by testing one s own ability and motivation or by building an academic record which will support admission to a Ph D program Students may find it advisable for any of these reasons to spend more than one year in the M A program and to enroll for more than 30 hours of course work Students who intend to apply for Ph D admission may find it especially useful to lengthen their time in the M A program since a sizable percentage of Ph D students have had three years of Master of Divinity work gaining additional exposure to various fields and additional experience in research and writing We have found that most students who enter the Ph D program after M A study take at least one more year than those who have come out of M Div study It often seems preferable for such students to take an additional year s work in the M A program before they are under the pressure of deadlines for the completion
