Diploma of Christian Studies

Engage in Tertiary studies with Melbourne School of Theology.

What it's all about.

Studying at tertiary level means embarking on a journey of discovery as you dive into a range of topics and themes about God, His mission and your role in it.

Alongside other students, you'll grapple with new ideas as you reflect on how these can impact your relationship with God and the world.

The beauty of Worldview's residential site is that learning doesn't stop once you leave the classroom. You get to talk to lecturers, staff and students informally around the dinner table or while doing duties together.

As a tertiary theological student you'll have plenty of sources to process and reflect on, culminating in assessments that include essay writing or group work.

Students often speak of new discoveries they've made about themselves and God as they've learned to manage time, energy and deadlines.

You too can be one of these students whose life has changed because God was at work and drew them closer to a deeper walk with Him, grasping His word and aware of their fit and place in His mission.
