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:
The course will focus on disciplines across Bible and Languages (BB, LA, OT, NT), Christian Thought and History (TH, CH, PE), as well as units by which the knowledge of God is applied to the three areas of the field Ministry and Practice: Evangelism and Mission (EM), Pastoral and Church Focused Ministry (PC) and Developmental Ministry (DM).
This course is open to those who have graduated with or qualified for (at least) a bachelor degree or equivalent qualification in a non-theological discipline from an Australian university or other approved higher education provider, or who have successfully completed a course of study this is deemed equivalent.
The Graduate Certificate 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 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, the Master of Ministry, and the Master of Divinity have been devised. This course provides a smooth pathway from a one-year course to the Master of Divinity, should a student wish to articulate.
32 credit points at 500/600-level.
1 year full-time (up to 4 years part-time).
Units are available both on-campus and online.
