SERVING AND PROSPECTIVE CLERGY
Clergy Track courses focus on currently serving clergy (in-service) and men preparing for ordination (pre-service) in the Orthodox Church.
The academic content of the track is at seminary level.
*Enrolment in this track, whether as a cleric or pre-service candidate, is subject to the blessing of the applicant’s Ruling Bishop. Pre-service candidates are expected to participate actively in the life of their local parish and will be partnered with a clerical mentor for the duration of their course.
Bachelor of Theology
The normal qualification is the Bachelor of Theology.
This is a three year full-time, or up to nine years part-time, qualification that covers the areas of knowledge required for ordained service.
For the structure of the Clergy Track BTh see here.
Diploma of Ministry and Theology
It is a basic qualification ideal for:
Serving clergy without a formal theological qualification who are unable to commit to an extended course of study;
Clergy wanting a "refresher" course;
Clergy with a theological qualification from a non-Orthodox institution who seek a structured foundation specifically in Orthodox faith and practice; and
Mature-age pre-service candidates or others who due to their circumstances are unable to commit to an extended course of study.
Graduate Diploma in Divinity
8 units at Postgraduate level.
Master of Divinity
Clergy Track candidates with previous tertiary qualifications in any field other than theology may be admitted to the Master of Divinity.
