We are currently going through the re-validation process (which happens every 5 or so years) and it has given me the chance to reflect over the degree during and before my time. Although obviously not perfect, it has been pretty good in not just providing degree level content, but also developing people to think and act theologically and philosophically.
That then got me thinking about how studying theology for me has changed me in ways I would never have considered.
Therefore, I was wondering if anyone would be willing to post or write in a sentence or two how studying theology/philosophy at Newman has changed them. I am not really thinking about careers (although, that seems to be the ONLY way the gov’t thinks), but how you have changed as a person.
The government may want to measure our success by the size of your wage packet. We have a lot more faith and pride in you and want to celebrate who you are becoming and the part that we might have played in that.
If you would rather send them to me privately – you can here or at r.goode [at] staff.newman.ac.uk
I hope you will. And thanks.
