The Masteral of Arts Program
Research Methodology I (3.0 units) - Serves as an integration-synthesis course aimed at enabling the students to see the whole course program from a global perspective. The course introduces and exercises students to various types and aspects of liturgical research that can form part of possible itineraries for liturgical discourse of either academic or pastoral nature, or both.
Research Methodology II (3.0 units) - Orients and initiates the students into writing a thesis or a research-project paper on a liturgical topic. It begins with an exposition on the qualities of a liturgical thesis/research-project paper, proceeds to the articulation of the status quaestionis, the scope and limitation, the significance of the study, its contribution to liturgical science, the methodology and research itinerary, proper citation of sources and studies, organization, and development of the thesis/research paper.
