MA Gold has been expanded to offer a number of streams. You are welcome to select units from any of the streams. The ‘Theology’ stream units focus on Bible and Christian Theology with an application to preaching and teaching. The ‘Ministry; stream units cover key issues in congregational life and contemporary mission. The ‘Preaching’ stream integrates with the annual Preachers Conference. While most students take one unit each year. It is possible to take 2 or 3 units a year. The program also provides one opportunity to take a study tour to biblical sites. An 8,000 word research project is required as part of the Master of Arts.
Due to government changes to the Australian Qualifications Framework, all Level 9 (Masters) degrees must now include a substantial research-based project, a capstone experience or a piece of scholarship. Read more about the Capstone Experience.
