1 Year Diplomas
Worldview has aligned its curriculum so that units studied may be credited towards a number of different awards, depending on your own needs. The following units are offered in the Diploma of Christian Studies, Diploma of Ministry and Diploma of Theology:
Jesus and the Gospels
Old Testament Foundations
Early New Testament Churches
Old Testament Prophets and Writings
History of Missions
Doctrine of God and Person & Work of Christ
If you have an interest in picking up a unit which is not offered at Worldview, any non-core units may be substituted for other units offered through any of the Australian College of Theology (ACT) affiliated colleges. A number of colleges offer these by distance or intensive mode.
Note that spiritual, interpersonal and ministry formation are embedded in Worldview training. Topics not covered in accredited units are taught as part of an internal Worldview program.
Diploma Of Christian Studies (IETLS 6.0)
The Diploma of Christian Studies (DipChrStuds) introduces you at a foundation level to the sources and content of the Christian story and message, and provides training which emphasises application of this story to life in the world, including professional and vocational life.
This course in Christian studies is based on the disciplines by which knowledge of God is developed and articulated (through units in the fields of ‘Bible and Languages’ and ‘Christian Thought’), and on the disciplines by which knowledge of God is applied to guide Christian practice (through units in the field of ‘Ministry and Practice’).
The course also provides an approach to integrating this understanding with particular occupational and/or life interests.
All units are taken at 200 level. Unless otherwise stated in the unit outline, for 200 level units in attendance mode each unit normally requires about 105 demand hours over the semester. This is comprised of 26 hours of contact over 7 weeks, 40 hours devoted to general non-assessable reading, and a further 40 hours devoted to assessment tasks such as essays, class presentations and reports.
