Master of Divinity

The Master of Divinity is ACOM’s newest postgraduate degree in the field of Divinity and is aimed at students who have already completed an undergraduate degree in a discipline other than bible or theology, and are seeking to be endorsed as a minister of religion.

Over the course of the 24 unit program, students will be challenged to explore biblical and theological issues at a deep level and develop critical thinking skills that will set them up for effective full-time pastoral ministry.

This degree allows students to engage with independent research in areas of specific interest and to participate in ACOM’s spiritual formation process. The study of biblical languages also allows students to engage the biblical text at a new and profound level.

This is a three year full-time or nine year part-time qualification. Specialisations in a number of disciplines are available. Students who complete this degree continue their educational pathway with the Doctor of Philosophy or Doctor of Ministry.
