BACHELOR OF CHRISTIAN STUDIES
INTEGRATING THEOLOGICAL AND NON-THEOLOGICAL STUDIES - FOR LIFE, MINISTRY AND VOCATION
The Bachelor of Christian Studies provides students with a coherent program of general theological study that enables them to apply a Christian perspective to all aspects of their life, including their profession and vocation.
The Bachelor of Christian Studies is an integrative degree and incorporates one-year full-time equivalent of degree-level study in a non-theological field (of which at least 75% must form a coherent area of study, eg. business, psychology, comparative religions etc.) from an Australian University. The credit from these institutions is applied to a student’s Bachelor of Christian Studies record, with 32 credit points from an external provider. This non-ACT study should preferably be done alongside the study of the ACT units. Please note that this component of the course is subject to the ACT’s senescence Policy.
Open as a first degree to persons who have achieved Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) score of at least 65 or equivalent. Mature-age entry is available for candidates 21 years and older. Students may also be granted entry on demonstrated suitability for the course.
Further study pathways could include the BMin/BTh double degree; Grad Cert Div; Grad Dip Div; MTS (with advanced standing); BMin (Hons) or BTh (Hons) (assuming the required GPA is achieved)
This degree is designed to integrate theological reflection with the particular occupational and/or life interests of students, incorporating fields of non-theological study as credit towards the course. Graduates can reasonably expect to become a member of a non-theological profession with well-informed knowledge of the essential content of the Christian tradition.
