Combined Diplomas of Theology and Ministry (Pathway 1) (DipTh/DipMin(P1))
The purpose of the DipTh/DipMin(P1) is to prepare you for gospel ministry in your local environment or in cross-cultural settings in Australia or overseas. Graduates work in a wide variety of ministries including pastoral, youth, children’s, prison, church planting, evangelism, missions, and ‘tentmaking’. The course provides a broad understanding of the Bible, Church History and Theology as well as the option of choosing several Ministry and Missions units.
This is a 2 year full-time course or part-time with no maximum time limit.
The satisfactory completion of Year 12 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 (20 and above) will be favourably considered. There may be English proficiency prerequisites if your first language is not English.
The DipTh/DipMin(P1) requires the completion of 64 credit points at 200 level (6 undergraduate level units).
