Associate Degree of Theology (AssocDegTh)
The AssocDegTh is offered to provide a great balance of study in Bible, Church History, Theology and Missions. For the AssocDegTh, SMBC requires you to study 8 biblical units (Old Testament and New Testament) with advanced study of the English text of the Old and New Testaments in the second year and includes the option of studying a Biblical language. The student will also study units in Christian Thought and History as well as practical ministry units.
This is a 2 year full-time or maximum 6 year part-time course. If you choose the part-time study option it is strongly recommended to factor a full-time component (at least 2 semesters) into your course of study.
The satisfactory completion of Year 12 (with an ATAR of at least 65) in an Australian school system or equivalent, is a prerequisite for entry into this course. However, if you have not completed Year 12, an alternate academic suitability exercise will be set to determine suitability to start. There may be English proficiency prerequisites if your first language is not English.
The AssocDegTh requires the completion of 64 credit points at 300-400 level (16 undergraduate level units).
Credit gained from the AssocDegTh can be transferred towards the Bachelor of Theology within 10 years.
