The Master of Divinity and Master of Ministry (conferred by the Australian College of Theology) are intended for students with an undergraduate degree in a non-theological discipline. They will introduce students to the sources and content of the Christian story and message at an advanced level, and provide training which combines articulation of this story and message with application and practice in the contemporary world. Graduating students will gain the necessary biblical, theological and practical skills necessary for Christian ministry or further academic study. They are three year full-time (or equivalent) courses, though students who complete a fourth year of study may receive a combined MDiv-GDDiv course award.
The Master of Ministry degree offers students the opportunity to focus a greater portion of their course study on units from Evangelism & Missiology, Pastoral & Church-Focussed Ministry, and Developmental Ministry, and to complete their course without required study of the biblical languages.
The Master of Theological Studies provides graduate students with the opportunity to undertake further study in the disciplines by which the knowledge of God is developed and articulated, principally in the fields of Bible & Languages as well as Christian Thought & History.
