Entry Pathways

Entry with undergraduate study in a non-theology related discipline

Sydney College of Divinity provides programs in theology and related disciplines for students who have already gained a three-year undergraduate degree in another field. Students may complete a variety of awards from Graduate Certificates up to the Master of Divinity, with various entry and exit points. Specialised awards are available in particular disciplines through the Master of Arts, which can also be taken as exit points from the Master of Divinity. The Graduate Certificate in Arts, the Graduate Diploma of Arts and the Master of Arts are “nested” in order to provide students with the opportunity to undertake theological subjects at graduate level with an option as to entry and exit points.

On completion of appropriate graduate studies a student may move on to either the research interdisciplinary awards, Master of Philosophy or Doctor of Philosophy, or in the case of the Master of Divinity on to the purely theological award Doctor of Theology. A specialised opportunity for advanced research is available with the Doctor of Ministry, which incorporates the pursuit of advanced study in Christian Life and Ministry by research at the highest academic level in the context of professional practice.
