What’s the difference between Ministry and Theology?

Our Bachelor of Ministry and Bachelor of Theology courses are the same at their core, giving you a firm foundation in Leadership Principles and Christian Spirituality. Where they differ is in your choice of electives.

Ministry gives you the freedom to focus more on your preaching and practical, pastoral skills. 

Theology encourages you to learn Biblical languages, and explore in-depth the Old and New Testaments.
