ASSOCIATE DEGREE OF MINISTRY
FOUNDATIONAL THEOLOGICAL STUDY WITH A SPECIALISATION IN CHRISTIAN PRACTICE
The Associate Degree in Ministry grounds students in foundational theological disciplines and provides an opportunity for advanced level study of more specific unit areas within their chosen fields of study.
The two-year Associate Degree of Ministry requires students to satisfactorily complete foundational Bible & Christian Thought unit, before specialising in disciplines wherein the knowledge of God is applied to Christian practice in at least two fields within the following areas: Evangelism and Mission (EM), Pastoral and Church Focused Ministry (PC), and Developmental Ministry (DM).
Open to persons who have achieved an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) score of no less than 65 or equivalent; or successful completion of a qualification at AQF level 5 or above; or by demonstrated academic suitability for the course.
This course provides a smooth pathway from a two-year course to a bachelor degree, should a student wish to articulate.
The course provides foundational knowledge and skills appropriate to Christian ministry, but not to the depth required for leaders and teachers in congregations, for which vocations the Bachelor of Theology, Bachelor of Ministry, the Master of Ministry, and the Master of Divinity have been devised.
16 units (192 credit points) at AQF level 5 and above, including at least 4 units (48 credit points) at level 6 or above.
Minimum 2 years, maximum 6 years.
Units are available both on-campus and online.
