Religious Studies or Theological Studies from the University of the Western Cape take place in terms of four research frameworks, namely on "Moral education towards a human rights culture", "Ecumenical theology and social transformation in Africa", "Christian ecological theology" and "Biblical, theological and contextual hermeneutics and rhetoric".
It is possible to complete a Masters degree by thesis only. The same admission requirements as in the case of the structured Masters programme apply. Students who enrol for the thesis masters do not do coursework. They work under the guidance of a supervisor appointed by Senate. They may, however, attend the annual workshops on research methodology and are strongly urged to do so in order to develop their research skills.
