BACHELOR OF THEOLOGY
PREPARING MEN & WOMEN FOR WELL-INFORMED PARTICIPATION IN THE LIFE OF THE CHURCH & PASTORAL PRACTICE
The Bachelor of Theology introduces students, in a systematic manner, to the classical discipline of theology, as a means of preparing men and women for well-informed participation in the life of the church and, if students so choose, for ministry in one or more areas of pastoral practice.
In addition to Bible and Language units (LA, OT, NT, BB), the Bachelor of Theology has an emphasis on Christian Thought units in the areas of Theology (TH), Philosophy/Ethics/Apologetics (PE), and Church History (CH). Up to 24 credit points from Ministry and Practice units (PC) can also be incorporated as electives within this degree.
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)
The Bachelor of Theology has been devised to train men and women for ministry in areas of pastoral practice. Morling is the accrediting college for Baptist ministers in NSW and ACT, and the Bachelor of Theology is recommended for those who wish to become an accredited Baptist Pastor.
