GRADUATE DIPLOMA OF DIVINITY
AN INTRODUCTION TO GRADUATE STUDY IN BIBLICAL STUDIES & CHRISTIAN THOUGHT
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 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:
This course is open to those who have graduated with (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 that is deemed equivalent.
This course provides a smooth pathway from a one-year course to the Master of Divinity, 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, the Master of Ministry, and the Master of Divinity have been devised.
8 units (96 credit points) at AQF level 7 or above, with at least 3 units (36 credit points) at level 8 or above.
1 year minimum, 4 years maximum.
Units are available both on-campus and online.
