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.
See the ACT website for the full list of course learning outcomes.
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.
