The Bachelor of Theology allows a person to equip themselves with a deep understanding of the scriptures and the teaching and history of the church. It is particularly suited to those who may feel called to a teaching ministry within the church. The degree consists of 13 core subjects and 12 electives. The core subjects provide every student with an opportunity to explore Personal Formation for Ministry, Biblical Studies, and Theological Study. Depending upon which electives are chosen, a student can complete a major (8 subjects) or a minor (4 subjects) in Biblical Studies, Theology, or Church History. An intentional program of Spiritual Formation occurs throughout the program of study, encouraging students to see their Bachelor of Theology as not just a time of academic challenge but also a time of ongoing spiritual enrichment.
The focus on biblical studies and the history and theology of the church in the Bachelor of Theology helps to prepare graduates for Christian ministry or further study. Graduates serve as congregational pastors, associate pastors, and leaders in various church or para-church ministries and are able to apply for ordination to various denominational bodies, if they so desire Those who continue with their studies have found employment as lecturers within Christian tertiary colleges.
