POSTGRADUATE COURSES

Course units are delivered at distance (online), in interactive classes, with online support and resources.

Graduate Certificate in Ministry Studies (GCertMin)

One semester full-time or part-time equivalent; 18 Credit points

The Graduate Certificate in Ministry Studies (GCertMin) builds on a core unit, Reflecting on Best Practice in Ministry.  It prepares students for advanced thinking and skills used in the area of Ministry Practice. Building on the core unit, students can either choose three Guided Studies units or three Coursework units.

The path that you will take depends on whether you already hold a degree in ministry or theology (these students follow guided studies), or rather a degree in a different discipline (these students follow coursework units).

SCMOI offers both full and part-time enrolment in the GCertMin.

Graduate Diploma in Ministry (GDipMin)

One year full-time or part-time equivalent; 36 Credit points

 

The Graduate Diploma in Ministry (GDipMin) is a postgraduate professional diploma aimed at developing advanced knowledge and skills for innovative Christian leadership in a range of ordained and lay ministry settings and for preparing students for advanced research. It provides a pathway to the ACD Master of Ministry (MMin) and Doctor of Ministry (DMin).

The Graduate Diploma in Ministry offers the opportunity for students with an undergraduate degree in ministry or theology to specialise in areas of professional interest. It is also suitable for those with a degree in another discipline to advance their ability to apply theological and scriptural knowledge and ministry practice skills to their field of expertise. Students enrolled in the ACD Master of Ministry who have completed the required components, may choose to exit with a Graduate Diploma in Ministry.

 

SCMOI offers part-time enrolment in the GDipMin, though in some cases full-time candidacy may be accommodated.
