Back To Top

Diploma Of Theology

Course description

In addition to Bible Units, the Diploma of Theology has an emphasis on Christian Thought Units in the areas of  Theology, Languages, Church History, and Christian Thought. The Diploma 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.

Entry Requirements

Candidates are admitted upon satisfactory completion of year 12 in an Australian school system with an Australian Tertiary Admission rank (ATAR) score of no less than 65 or above; or successful completion of a qualification at AQF level 5 or above; or by demonstated academic suitability for the course.

Study Pathway

This course provides a smooth pathway into the Advanced Diploma, Associate Degree and Bachelor of Ministry/Theology awards, should a student wish to articulate.

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.

Credit Points

8 Units (96 credit points) at AQF level 5 and above.

Course Duration

Minimum 1 year, maximum 5.5 years.

Units are available both on-campus and online.
