Graduate Rationale

The Graduate Diploma of Theological Studies is designed for those who hold a three-year undergraduate tertiary qualification in a non-theological discipline and who wish to pursue a graduate qualification in theology and its associated disciplines, specifically those of Theology and Biblical Studies. Students will be able to critically engage Christian thought and traditions, enhance their professional works and give expression to insights for Christian living.

The Graduate Diploma of Theological Studies focuses on introducing students to two core theological disciplines (Theology and Biblical Studies) equipping them with foundational knowledge for further study in these two areas.
