To examine the relationship between Egyptian history and the biblical accounts.
All summer school courses are taught through group seminars and individual tutorials. Students also conduct private study when not in class and there is a well stocked library at OUDCE to support individual research needs.
By the end of the course students will be expected to have gained and/or developed the following skills:
- Familiarity with the chronology and history of ancient Egypt and the Bible
- An ability to critically assess the historical reliability of ancient texts
- An ability to reflect critically on the views of modern scholars
Students are assessed during the summer school by either a 1500 word written assignment or a presentation supported by individual documentation. To successfully gain credit (10 CATS points) students should attend all classes and complete the on-course assignment. There is also a pre-course assignment of 1000 words set. Although this does not count towards credit, it is seen as an important way of developing a student's ideas and therefore its completion is mandatory.
