AQF Level 9 Master of Divinity

The Master of Divinity (MDiv) provides a high level biblical and theological framework for communicating the Gospel faithfully. You will also gain appropriate skills for a range of ministry positions.

As a graduate course, units are assessed on a higher level than the equivalent units in the Bachelor of Theology and additional tasks may be assigned. Applicants must have a prior degree from an Australian University or equivalent in a non-theological field.

All full-time students enrol in the Certificate of Ministry alongside their degree for further training in practical ministry skills. Parttime students are strongly encouraged to do so.

Who is it for?

This accredited course provides training for men and women who already hold a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent, seeking to serve the Lord Jesus in vocational ministry, including:

  • Pastors
  • Missionaries
  • Women’s workers
  • Children’s or youth ministers
  • Biblical studies teachers
  • University Christian workers
  • Leaders in other forms of Word-based ministry

Where will it take me?

Completion of the Master of Divinity will equip you to enter a range of vocational ministry positions, both in Australia and abroad. Feel free to have a look at Our Graduates to get an idea of the type of ministry positions in which our graduates serve.

This is a course of the Australian College of Theology.
