ASSOCIATE DEGREE OF THEOLOGY
INTRODUCING STUDENTS TO THE SOURCES AND CONTENT OF THE CHRISTIAN STORY
The Associate Degree in Theology grounds students in foundational theological disciplines and provides an opportunity for advanced level study of more specific unit areas within a chosen field of study. A student’s specialisation is referred to as a “major”.
The two-year Associate Degree of Theology requires students to complete foundational Bible and Christian Thought units before undertaking units in a chosen specialisedfield of study. Specialisations include: Biblical and Language Studies; Christian Thought and History; and Practical Ministry Studies.
Open to persons who have achieved an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) score of no less than 65 or equivalent; 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 functional 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.
