Associate Degree of Theology
Summary of changes
There is minimal change to the Associate Degree of Theology. No course changes negatively impact the progress of existing students.
- A greater proportion of the course can be completed using Level 5 units than the previous course regulations permitted, offering greater flexibility of unit choices to students.
- Old Testament and New Testament introduction units can now be completed through completion of two OT and NT units (as per previous course structure), or can now be completed through single OT and NT overview units, complemented by Biblical Theology or Hermeneutics units.
- Fewer specific unit field requirements within the primary discipline of Bible and Theology units, and greater flexibility of unit selection. For example, only two set text books are required instead of the previous four units, although students can still choose to complete several as part of the course.
- Greater flexibility in increasing the proportion of elective units in the course.
No special transition arrangements are required for existing students. All existing credit achieved by existing students will be multiplied by three to transition to the new credit point structure.
