Research at Pilgrim
“Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose.”
Zora Neale Hurston
Research, discovery, collaborative work, and the creation of new knowledge is the very heart of academic work. It is also something that we do on a daily basis. There are many opportunities to engage in research at every stage of a course of study.
- As a Postgraduate Elective, there is a 12000-word Research Essay
- The Master of Theology (Research) by “major thesis” requires submission for examination of a thesis of 40,000 words, or by “minor thesis” requires completion of two postgraduate coursework units and submission for examination of a thesis of 25,000 words.
- The PhD and ThD require the submission of a thesis of not more than 100,000 words.

The Dalton McCaughey Library
The ‘DML’ houses the most significant theological collection in Oceania and is your first stop for any research. Search the library catalogue as your first stop.
The Library Hub
The Library Hub is a key online research tool: https://library.divinity.edu.au. It provides all currently enrolled students, staff and other members of the University with access to an extensive range of online resources. This includes full-text databases, eJournals, eBooks, and a range of other useful links and resources. Further information about the Library Hub is available here.
Because the Library Hub uses a discovery layer (EDS), a general query searches across multiple databases. So, simply follow the link and start typing.
Endnote is a bibliographical management tool, free to students of the University of Divinity. For further information, including how to obtain a copy, please see here: https://divinity.libguides.com/endnote
