DIPLOMA OF CHRISTIAN STUDIES

Course Description

The Diploma of Christian studies gives students an overview of the sources and content of the Christian story and message, and provides training that emphasizes application of this story to life in the world.

Entry Requirements

Candidates are normally admitted upon satisfactory completion of year 12 in an Australian school system or equivalent. Mature-age entry is available for candidates 20 years and older.

Course Outcomes

The Diploma of Christian Studies 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.

Career Options:

The course provides foundational 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, Master of Ministry, and the Master of Divinity have been devised.

Graduates might expect to fulfil the role of being an informed member of a church ministry team with shared responsibility for the Christian education program.
