2 Year Advanced Diploma / Associate Degree of Ministry
Advanced Diploma of Ministry (refer to pathway 1 option)
As with the 1 and 1.5 year awards, Worldview has aligned its curriculum so that units studied may be credited towards a number of awards. In the case of the two year curriculum, an Advanced Diploma of Ministry or an Associate Degree of Ministry. Each of these courses will give you a solid foundation in bible, theology and mission, with an emphasis on application in the contemporary world. The majority of the AdvDipMin pathway 1 units are studied at 200 level. Units in the AssocDegMin are taken at 300-400 level. The following units are offered in these two courses:
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
Principles and Practice of Hermeneutics
Old Testament Exegesis
New Testament Exegesis
Church Sacraments and Ministry or Doctrines of Grace and Eschatology
2 electives – for example, Aid and Development, Leadership and Management, Patterns of Spiritual Formation, Evangelism and Missiology Seminar, Christian Ministry in Islamic Contexts, Cross-cultural Field Education
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. Likewise, if you want to credit these units towards a different ACT award, for example, an Advanced Diploma of Theology (pathway 1), this option may be available. Contact Denise for more details.
