DIPLOMA OF CHRISTIAN STUDIES
AN OVERVIEW OF THE CHRISTIAN STORY AND MESSAGE
The Diploma of Christian Studies gives students an overview of the sources and content of the Christian story and message, and provides training that emphasises application of this story to life in the world. The course is based on disciplines by which knowledge of God is developed and articulated, and applied to guide Christian practice. It will also provide an approach to integrating this understanding with particular occupational and/or life interests.
Candidates are normally admitted upon satisfactory completion of year 12 in an Australian school system or equivalent with an ATAR of 65 or above; or by demonstrated academic suitability for the course.
This course provides a smooth pathway into the Advanced Diploma, Associate Degree and Bachelor of Ministry/Theology awards, should a student wish to articulate.
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.
