Research St Augustine Johannesburg South Africa

Department of Research

The Department is responsible for courses in Academic Development and Research Skills (a compulsory first year undergraduate module) and CAPSTONE (an interdisciplinary research component in the final year of the BA programme).

​At the postgraduate level, the Department provides research training through a range of initiatives, including the Academic Writing workshop, the Research Design and Methods workshop, and the annual Doctoral Seminar.

Finally, the Department coordinates St Augustine Papers, our in-house Journal. The Journal is published twice a year and presents research conducted by local and international scholars in all the disciplines taught at St Augustine.

What is our goal?

At St Augustine, we believe that the ultimate goal of all research is truth and that, as humans, we are capable of discovering truth, which runs through everything. Furthermore, we see generating new knowledge primarily as a means of serving the common good and building a more just society.

Research is important to us

Not only does research lie at the very heart of academic enquiry, but it underpins what we can reliably know as individuals and as a society. In the era of fake news and fake facts, researchers around the globe continue to engage in careful study of various subjects in order to discover and disseminate genuine knowledge.
