Course description

The two-year Associate Degree of Ministry requires specialisation in disciplines by which the knowledge of God is applied to guide Christian practice in at least two of the following fields within the Department of Ministry and Practice: Evangelism and Missiology (EM), Pastoral and Church Focused Ministry (PC), Developmental Ministry (DM).

Entry Requirements

Open to persons who have achieved an Australian Tertiary Admission rank (ATAR) score of no less than 65 or equivalent. Mature-age entry is available for candidates 21 years and older.

Course Outcomes

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.

 
Career Options

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. This course provides a smooth pathway from a two-year course to a bachelor degree, should a student wish to articulate.

The graduate could reasonably expect to graduate with well-informed knowledge of the essential content of the Christian tradition. 

Credit Points

16 units (64 credit points) at 300/400-level.

Course Duration

2 years full-time (The maximum candidature is 6 years part-time).

Study Modes

Units are available both on-campus and online.
