Bachelor of Theology

The Bachelor of Theology degree is a primary qualification in theology and is the basis for further study at postgraduate level. It is a broad course combining both theological and practical studies. All relevant components and course units of the Bachelor of Theology are normally completed over three years.

After satisfying the requirements of the Bachelor of Theology, students may be eligible to complete the Bachelor of Theology (Honours) program or to complete a postgraduate course of study as advised by the Faculty Board.

Part-time study is available, although priority is given to prospective full-time students during the admissions process and with regards to scholarship opportunities.
