The Graduate Diploma of Divinity introduces students, in a systematic manner, to the classical discipline of theology, as a means of both preparing men and women for communicating Christian knowledge as well as laying the foundation for advanced degrees in theology and ministry.
The Graduate Diploma of Divinity constitutes one-third of the Master of Divinity (without the requirement for a Capstone Experience unit or research Project) and can be completed in the following ways:
See the ACT website for the full list of course learning outcomes.
This course provides a smooth pathway from a one-year course to the Master of Divinity, should a student wish to articulate.
