Master of Divinity (MDiv)
The SMBC Master of Divinity is designed to prepare you for full-time vocational ministry. At AQF level 9, it’s ideal for those who already have a non-theological undergraduate degree. It can be studied full-time or part-time.
The Master of Divinity will give you comprehensive biblical foundations (Old Testament and New Testament) along with deeper study of theology, ethics, church history, missions, preaching and pastoral care. It also provides electives to allow you to choose areas to specialise in and opportunities to integrate your studies with the contemporary world. A requirement of this course is study of the biblical languages.
Studying the Master of Divinity full-time will also provide you the opportunity to concurrently do the SMBC Certificate in Bible and Mission (CBM). The CBM gives you access to all the benefits of SMBC’s expertise in spiritual formation, cross-cultural mission and pastoral ministry.
If for any reason your circumstances make it not possible to complete your Master of Divinity studies, it is possible to graduate with a Graduate Diploma of Divinity (which requires 96 credit points).
The SMBC Master of Divinity will equip you to preach, teach and provide leadership in ministry and mission – in Australia and overseas. It is well recognised by most denominations and mission agencies.
