Theology

Whatever your calling and wherever it is to be exercised, the ability to think and speak clearly about God is crucial. Eastern's Theology and Christian Studies courses provide in-depth understanding for handling Scripture and deepening spiritual life. All our courses introduce you to studies of Scripture and Christian truth, an overview of history and ethics, and much more.

As Eastern College Australia is in partnership with Melbourne School of Theology, prospective students interested in Bachelor level studies are advised to look at their offerings - see http://www.mst.edu.au.

The Graduate Diploma of Arts provides a grounding for graduates of other disciplines. The Graduate Diploma exposes the student to thinking theologically, analysing Scripture carefully and thinking about ideas in the light of their history and social context.

The Graduate Certificate of Arts also provides a grounding for graduates of other disciplines. The Graduate Certificate exposes the student to thinking theologically, analysing Scripture carefully and thinking about ideas in the light of their history and social context with less requirements than the Graduate Diploma.

  • Think through the basics and develop skills in various ministries
  • Share faith and talk about issues of belief with others
