The Master of Divinity is a holistic and flexible award with a variety of vocational outcomes, open to people who hold a non-ministry or theology undergraduate degree. Whether you are interested in exploring a calling to Christian ministry, want to develop a deeper understanding of the Christian faith and Scriptures, or be equipped for a specific ministry vocation, the Master of Divinity is the award for you.
This outstanding course provides students with an advanced and integrated understanding of the Christian Scriptures, Christian theology and the nature of Christian ministry. During the course, students are required to complete an eight (8) subject major which focuses on their choice of theological studies or a specific area of Christian ministry (this may be church leadership or contextual mission). The course also includes a ‘capstone project’ which may involve a supervised placement or significant research project.
Outcome: The recognition accorded this qualification ensures graduates enjoy a variety of professional opportunities. They may find employment in local churches in roles which relate to their area of ministry specialisation (e.g., pastoral leadership, pastoral care). Alternatively, the Master of Divinity opens the door to further postgraduate ministry/theological study, which will enable individuals to find employment in Christian tertiary education institutions.
