New Frontiers Series

The Theology Department has hosted a lecture series, New Frontiers in Theological Research, twice a year since 2012. The aim of the series is to present the scholarly research of the faculty of the UST Theology Department in a publicly accessible form. The series contributes to the University’s emphasis on the integration of theology with other fields of study.
