| Students should gain a critical understanding of the ways in which the natural sciences have challenged traditional theological thinking, through a respectful understanding of the science involved; and they should begin to understand the ways in which theologians, historically and in the present day, have responded to that challenge. Students should also be able to demonstrate an ability to identify key terms and their meanings and to demonstrate good judgement about how to judge the relative importance of items on course bibliographies.
