The Bachelor of Theology is a three-year full time degree (based on a trimester system) or part time equivalent award. This is a comprehensive course where you will learn in depth about the foundations of our faith, the original context of the Bible and its application.

Your three-year course includes a 2-trimester study of the biblical languages, Koine Greek and/or Biblical Hebrew, enabling you to engage with the scripture yourself.

The course provides the sturdy base of biblical and academic scholarship for a ministry vocation in various church or para-church settings. You will be equipped to serve the church, and a foundation is laid for further studies if you so choose, including graduate and postgraduate studies.
