BTh. in Pastoral Studies (Completers Degree)

This program is designed for those involved in full time or lay ministry who want to complete a Bachelor of Theology degree.  As with the B.A. Th (Pastoral Studies), we are equipping individuals to ‘shepherd the flock of God.’  We seek to instil a deep commitment to being apprentices of Christ Himself, marked by a deep humility that reflects His heart and mind.  Students embark on a journey of discovery, accompanied by practitioners who both model and instruct them how to lead, feed and care for God’s people, with both skill and passion.

PLEASE NOTE:  THIS PROGRAM IS AVAILABLE TO APPLICANTS WHO HAVE ALREADY COMPLETED A DIPLOMA IN THEOLOGY AND WISH TO COMPLETE A PASTORAL STUDIES DEGREE. TRANSCRIPTS WILL BE REVIEWED AND ASSESSED INDIVIDUALLY TO ENSURE THAT ALL COURSE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DIPLOMA HAVE BEEN MET.  STUDENTS MAY BE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE COURSES WHERE DEFICIENCIES ARE EVIDENT.
