DIPLOMA OF THEOLOGY
AN EMPHASIS ON CHRISTIAN THOUGHT UNITS IN THE AREAS OF THEOLOGY, CHURCH HISTORY, AND PHILOSOPHY & ETHICS
In addition to Bible Units, the Diploma of Theology has an emphasis on Christian Thought Units in the areas of Theology, Church History, and Philosophy & Ethics.
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 completiion of a qualification at AQF level 5 or above; or by demonstated academic suitability for the course.
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.
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 of this course may be well-informed members of a church-ministry team with shared responsibility for the Christian education program, or a member of a church pastoral ministry team under the leadership of a qualified practitioner with a degree in theology or ministry.
