The Master of Divinity gives you the best possible preparation if you want to preach and teach the bible, lead in ministry, evangelise, plant a church, and take part in the wider debates in the church and society. It offers you academic rigour, theological depth and a wide range of options for developing your ministry skills.
Students build a broad framework in their first year, and then develop depth, learn critical thinking skills, key principles and tools for interpreting the Bible and developing their theological thinking. Bible, history, theology and ministry are all covered, although there is an emphasis on Bible and theology.
The course includes the essential research principles and methods as preparation for higher degrees in Theology and Ministry.
This course can be combined with the Graduate Diploma of Divinity to create a four-year program.
