Courses

From undergraduate diplomas through to postgraduate research degrees, whether full-time, part-time or by intensive mode study, SMBC offers academic depth with flexibility.  All our courses have solid Biblical foundations and preparation for ministry, but each course has different requirements and emphasis. Except for the Certificate in Bible and Mission (CBM) and the Introductory Certificate in Christian Studies (ICCS), which are SMBC awards, all courses are Australian College of Theology (ACT) courses.

Undergraduate studies require no previous degree; Graduate studies require a previous non-theological degree; Postgraduate studies require a previous theological degree.
