Bachelor of Theology/Bachelor of Ministry (BTh/BMin)

Admission requirements: ATAR of 65+ or Mature Age Entry (21yr+)


The BTh/BMin is aimed at equipping you for full-time pastoral, evangelistic or Bible teaching ministry in Australia and overseas, with additional emphasis on missions, pastoral and ministry skills. This combined degree includes the full Bachelor of Theology course which you will complete initially. Following this, the additional units leading to the award of the Bachelor of Ministry are chosen from a wide selection of ministry and practice areas: missions and cross-cultural studies, spiritual formation, evangelism and educational chaplaincy. You may also choose to include a research project or a Master of Arts level unit in your selection.


This is a 4 year full-time or maximum 12 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.

Admission Requirements

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, mature age entry (21 and above) will be favourably considered. There may be English proficiency prerequisites if your first language is not English.

Credit Points

The BTh/BMin requires the completion of 128 credit points at 300-400 level (32 undergraduate level units).
