The Graduate Diploma of Divinity is a great introduction to the Bible, theology and ministry for those who already hold a bachelor level degree.
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.
The Graduate Diploma of Divinity will enable you to reflect on aspects of your Christian faith and practice according to your interests. We offer a range of subjects that allow you to specialise in different areas of ministry including School Chaplaincy and Children’s and Youth Ministry.
