The Master of Divinity gives students a deeper understanding of the discipline of theology, as well as the skills with which to communicate Christian knowledge effectively. It also provides the groundwork for advanced degrees in theology and ministry.
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 degree 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 which is deemed equivalent.
The Master 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 Master of Divinity has been devised to train men and women for ministry in areas of pastoral practice. Morling is the accrediting college for Baptist ministers in NSW and ACT, and the Master of Divinity is recommended for those who wish to become an accredited Baptist Pastor.
