The Graduate Diploma of Divinity is a great introduction to the Bible, theology and ministry for those who already hold a bachelor level degree. The GDDiv is the equivalent of the first year of a Master of Divinity/Ministry degree. The Graduate Certificate of Divinity is the first half of the GDDiv.
Graduates will be equipped to serve in their churches and communities with a more informed approach to ministry. These courses are generally not sufficient training for full-time ministry which typically requires the completion of a three or four-year degree.
