What qualifications can I get?

Students will work towards achieving the following awards

Bachelor of Theology

Master of Arts

Intro to the Bible

Core subject to BTh & MA

Understanding the Bible is foundational for the Christian life. Whilst many of us have read the Bible, there are many sections that are seemingly foreign and strange, or that we just plain avoid. This unit aims to introduce you to the Old and New Testaments, and its big-picture story. We will explore the historical and thematic developments of the Bible assisting you to understand how the different biblical books and messages all fit together. Further, we will discuss how the message of Scripture, which was set in a very different context to us, can be applied to today.

Offered Semester 1 – March 2017

Christian Worldview

Core subject to BTh & MA

Do you have questions about God that you have been unable to answer?  Do you sometimes wonder whether Christian beliefs about things like the Trinity and the divinity of Jesus make any sense?  This unit provides you with the opportunity to explore those beliefs that are foundational to Christianity.  It argues that what we believe about God (our theology) has a practical impact upon our life and ethics and, therefore, provides an overview of Christian faith, and reflects on the ways in which this faith informs our everyday life and calling. The topics addressed range from the doctrine of God, creation and sin, to discussion on the person and work of Christ, and the nature of the coming kingdom of God.

Offered Semester 1 – March 2017

 

History of Christianity

Core subject to BTh & MA

This subject is an introduction to the rich and inspiring heritage of Christian tradition, examined within social and cultural contexts.  It explores early church formation, the challenges of the medieval era, the repercussions of the renaissance and the reasons for the reformation.  Major revivals are analysed as well as the effectiveness of modern missionary movements.  The struggles and strengths of the 20th century are also revealed, as well as various issues facing the 21st-century church.  By exploring such historical shifts in spirituality and society, students will gain an understanding of both contingency and continuity in Christian history, in order to deepen their understanding of gospel ministry today.
