The two-year Associate Degree of Theology concentrates on the disciplines by which the knowledge of God is developed and articulated in two main Departments: Bible and Languages and, Christian Thought and History. This course introduces students to the sources and content of the Christian story and message, and provides training which emphasises application and articulation of this story and messgae in the contemporary world.
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.
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 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. This course provides a smooth pathway from a two-year course to a bachelor degree, should a student wish to articulate.
16 units (64 credit points) at 300/400-level.
