4 1. Introduction Moore College trains candidates for the ordained ministry in the Anglican Diocese of Sydney. However, students from other denominations and many who are missionary candidates or who do not plan to enter the ordained ministry also study at the College. For those who are unable to undertake full-time study the College provides, through Moore College Distance, courses online, by correspondence and evening lecture. These courses are designed to provide an introduction to the whole field of theological study and are modelled on the full-time courses, but are less demanding. The Moore College Evening Course (offered in our evening lecture program) is designed to equip God s people with a deeper knowledge of God s Word. The course does not lead to ordination. This Handbook sets out the course requirements for the Moore College Evening Course and will help you get the maximum benefit from the course. 2. How the Course Operates The Moore College Evening Course is designed to be at a higher standard than the College s PTC (by correspondence and/or online) and ITS which is offered online. Students need to be aware of this and be prepared to spend the necessary time and make the necessary effort to achieve the required standard. There is no entry requirement and no time limit set for completion of the course. The course leads to the Moore College Evening Course Award with Honours. Therefore students are encouraged to commit themselves to completing the entire course rather than ceasing after fulfilling the pass diploma requirements. Students who commence the Moore College Evening Course and are unable to continue, can apply to receive cross crediting for some units in the PTC and ITS courses. Such requests should be made in writing to the Manager of Moore College Distance. There are four terms each year commencing in February, late April, mid-july and mid-october. One unit is offered at every centre each term. The term consists of seven weeks of lectures (two hours on one night per week), plus an exam in the eighth week. Lectures are held in three centres. In principle, a student will study all 16 subjects by attending one centre for four years. Student Handbook P a g e

5 The Centres are located at: NEWTOWN: PARRAMATTA: TURRAMURRA: Moore College, Knox Centre, 15 King Street Tuesdays pm St John s Cathedral, Church Street Wednesdays pm St James s Hall, King St Thursdays pm 3. Subjects There are 16 subjects offered which are divided into 2 groups: CORE SUBJECTS Biblical Theology Old Testament 1 Old Testament 2 New Testament 1S (Synoptic Gospels) New Testament 2E (Epistles) Doctrine 1 Doctrine 2 Church History 1 OPTIONAL SUBJECTS Old Testament 3 Church History 2 Apologetics Christian Worship Ethics John s Gospel Romans Ministry To complete the Course at PASS LEVEL a student must pass 10 subjects including all eight core subjects. Students who commenced the course prior to 1997 should read the Change in Regulations section. To complete the Course at HONOURS LEVEL a student must pass all 16 subjects. Students who average more than 75% are eligible for First Class Honours and those who average more than 65% are eligible for 2nd Class Honours. 4 P a g e Student Handbook 2015

6 4. Some new developments in the course Biblical Theology Biblical Theology was introduced to the course in The Biblical Theology unit provides an overview of the Bible. As such, it also provides an overview of the entire Moore College Evening Course. Although you may take units in any order, it is highly recommended that Biblical Theology be taken as early as possible in your program. Please note that this unit is offered each year at one of our centres. You might consider travelling to another centre to complete this unit as soon as possible. It is usually offered in first term so that it can be studied at the earliest stage of the year. As a subject which seeks to provide a framework for the Moore College Evening Course program, as well as your own Bible reading, this subject promises to be a very important component in your growth in Bible knowledge. We hope you will appreciate it and profit from it enormously. New Testament Subjects Apart from the introduction of Biblical Theology, now only two New Testament subjects are offered. New Testament 1 remains the same, now called NT1 (Synoptic Gospels). NT2 (Epistles) provides an overview of both the Pauline and the general epistles. It contains elements of both the old subjects New Testament 2 and New Testament 3. Biblical Theology, NT1(S) and NT2(E) are all core subjects under the new regulations. 5. Change in Regulations From 1997 a pass in all eight core subjects is required to complete the pass level course. The new developments should not cause too many problems for those studying under the old regulations: If you still had to complete both (the old) NT2 and NT3, then you simply take both (the new) NT 2(Epistles) and Biblical Theology. If you had to complete either (the old) NT2 or NT3, then you can choose to complete either Biblical Theology or NT2 (Epistles). If you have already completed (the old) NT2 or NT 3, then you will find that you have already covered some of the material in the new subjects although even this is to your greater learning! A comparison of the new subject outlines with the outlines of the old NT2 and NT3 will show you the points of overlap, and so help you to make your choice. It may be of additional assistance to you in your planning to know that, in the timetable, Biblical Theology has replaced (the old) NT2; and NT2 (Epistles) has replaced NT3. Student Handbook P a g e

7 We anticipate the program over the next 4 years will be as follows, although the order subjects are taught in a given year may possibly change. Term 1 Term 2 Term 3 Term 4 Newtown 2015 Apologetics Christian Worship Old Testament 1 New Testament 1S 2016 Ministry Old Testament 2 John Church History Doctrine 1 Ethics Biblical Theology Old Testament New Testament 2E Romans Church History 2 Doctrine 2 Parramatta 2015 Biblical Theology Ethics Old Testament 3 Doctrine Romans Church History 2 New Testament 2E Doctrine Old Testament 1 Apologetics Christian Worship New Testament 1S 2018 Old Testament 2 Ministry Church History 1 John Turramurra 2015 Doctrine 2 Romans New Testament 2E Church History Apologetics New Testament 1S Old Testament 1 Christian Worship 2017 John Church History 1 Old Testament 2 Ministry 2018 Doctrine 1 Ethics Biblical Theology Old Testament 3 6. Assessment Each subject is assessed by a short assignment of approximately 1000 words and a two hour exam. The assignment is due in week 4. Marks will be deducted for late submission of the assignment (10% for each week late, i.e. 2 marks per week). Assessment: Assignment (1000 words) - worth 20% of the final mark Exam - worth 80% of the final mark If you do not complete both the exam and the assignment in the same term you will need to re-sit the subject and complete the required work in a later term. No work completed in previous terms will be taken into account. Students may proceed through the course without submitting themselves for assessment but will not be deemed as having completed the Moore College Evening Course. The required length of the assignment will be 1000 words. 7. Exam Arrangements a) Exams are always offered on the same night as the lecture and in the eighth week of term. b) Exams are 2 hours in length and usually have 3 questions. c) Paper is provided for students at the examination. 6 P a g e Student Handbook 2015

8 d) In the Biblical subjects students may use an UNMARKED Bible, unless informed otherwise by the lecturer. Study Bibles are NOT permitted. The Bible text used in exam questions is the NIV, unless otherwise notified by your lecturer. e) Students are responsible for following all instructions given at the time of the exam. Failure to do so may result in the loss of marks. f) Students will be notified by mail of their results. 8. Fees In 2015 the fee is $135 per unit. Enrolment forms are available from the Moore College Distance department. We ask that enrolment forms and fees be posted to the Moore College Distance Department prior to the commencement of each term. Details of the lecture program with term dates and other information are posted to students with their receipt. If a student has a problem in paying fees on time, a request for an extension should be put in writing and posted to the Manager of Moore College Distance giving all relevant information. Each request is treated on its merits. Course fees are non-refundable. 9. The Lecturers Members of the Moore College faculty lecture in the course. Other lecturers are usually parish clergy who have particular expertise. 10. Recording Lectures The recording of lectures is not permitted. If, under exceptional circumstances, a lecturer gives permission for a lecture to be recorded, the recording must not be copied or used by anyone other than a student enrolled in the subject, and the recording must be erased within seven days. 11. Books Theological books are both numerous and expensive. Yet they are an important aid to your study. While you do not need to purchase any books to do the course, you will find that it helps. Here are a few comments to help you decide what to buy. a) There are certain basic books which will help you throughout the Course and which you ought to own. These are: i) The New Bible Dictionary, IVP ii) iii) The New Bible Commentary, IVP A good concordance, (what you buy will depend on the Bible version you usually use) b) There are other books which you will find useful to purchase. These include commentaries on individual bible books and a general doctrine book such as Know the Truth by Bruce Milne or In Understanding Be Men by T.C. Hammond. Student Handbook P a g e

9 c) Other books are also helpful in allowing you to go much more deeply into the subject being studied. These may be worth purchasing, but often it is better to use them for a while to see if you would continue to gain value from them. You may be able to borrow them from someone for a short time or you may find them in your local library. (Librarians are often prepared to purchase books which are texts for courses). d) In some subjects we recommend material published by the Moore College Distance Department. These notes are only available to our students and not for general sale. e) The Moore College library, situated at 93 King Street Newtown, is open to the public Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 5.00pm. Books cannot be borrowed from the College library. 12. How to study and pass exams Effective study is often hampered by students not understanding how to make the best use of appropriate study skills and exam marks could often be improved by the application of better exam technique. In order to assist you, Moore College Distance has produced a book - How to Study. Although it is written especially for students of our PTC Award, the principles are just as applicable to Evening Course students. It is both simple and practical and should allow you to pursue your studies with much greater effectiveness. It can be ordered from the Moore College Distance Department. 13. Taking Lecture Notes Here is some advice to help you get the maximum benefit from your lectures. a) What is the purpose of lectures? The primary purpose of lectures is to convey information. However, obtaining information can often better be achieved by reading books and there are plenty of books readily available. So why not just a reading list? Lectures can be effectively used to: give guidance towards key issues float ideas for consideration Lecturers recognise that they cannot cover everything, therefore select the most important material. They also seek to make you think about an issue, sometimes by being controversial in their statements. For this reason it is never enough just to take down lecture notes and learn the material. You must think it through, do extra reading wherever possible and organise the material in a way that will help you learn. b) The lecturers are there to teach you. It is important to inform your lecturer of problems you are having. If you do not understand something, ask questions. You should, however, choose an appropriate time. Some questions need to be asked immediately, others disrupt the flow of the lecture. Be sensitive to the needs of others in the class, but pursue the question until you get an answer. If you cannot hear, if you are confused, or if the material is hard to follow, tell the lecturer. 8 P a g e Student Handbook 2015

10 c) Preparation. You will get a lot more from a lecture if you are properly prepared. Here are two suggestions on how to prepare for lectures: review previous lectures. Prior to the lecture you should read through the previous material so that you can remember what is being built on read beforehand - even if only a summary from a Bible Dictionary, it will help you understand some of the material to be presented. This is where textbooks prove helpful d) Material. How you organise your notes can be important. Here are some suggestions: use a loose leaf folder. This will allow you to reorganise your material in a way that suits you, such as adding notes from your reading etc. write on one side of the paper so that you can put extra notes on the opposite page in your folder leave plenty of space on the page so that it is easier to read later e) Notes are just that - notes! Don t try to write down everything. Just record key material. Trying to write down everything means that you might miss insights that can be the most valuable part of the lecture. Some suggestions include: think before you write use note form rather than prose develop your own shorthand use indents for easier reading f) After the lecture. After the lecture there are a number of things you should do to obtain maximum benefits: re-read your notes as soon as possible tidy up the material and make any corrections - do NOT rewrite, it s a waste of time note anything you don t understand - try to work it out yourself first, then ask other students, and if you still do not understand it then ask the lecturer note any issues to raise at the next lecture g) Read other material as soon as possible and add any extra material to the lecture notes. h) Summarise material at the end of each section and begin to learn the summaries. The reasons for doing this and a detailed explanation of how to do it are set out in the How to Study book which is available for sale from Moore College Distance. Student Handbook P a g e

11 Syllabus The syllabus is provided for the information of students. Lecturers may make some changes within the syllabus according to their own interests and expertise. This means that the actual outline for each subject will be provided at the first lecture. It should be noted that the topics listed for each subject do not give an indication of either the number of lectures or relative importance of each topic. That information will be provided in the course outline at the beginning of the term. Recommended reading has been included to allow students who wish to do some reading before the beginning of term to obtain helpful books. In general, these will be the basic texts for each subject, but lecturers may make their own recommendations. Students may save themselves some expense by waiting until the first lecture before buying books. During the term other books may be recommended either for the assignment or for those who wish to pursue the subject in more depth. There are no prerequisites for any subject. For example, New Testament 1S does not have to be completed before New Testament 2E. Core Subjects 1.
