Current Research Areas
We are proud of the growing research culture within our affiliated colleges. The Australian College of Theology currently offers four research degrees: Master of Theology, Doctor of Ministry, Doctor of Philosophy and Doctor of Theology. Our faculties are research active, valuing publishing as a contribution that they make to the consortium and to wider scholarship. Our academics are producing books, chapters, articles, papers and other research outputs across a variety of fields, and these are detailed in our annual Research Reports, available on the Publications page.
Since 2014 we have published the ACT Monograph Series in partnership with Wipf & Stock Publishers. The Monograph Series seeks to publish quality research theses and studies. We have also collaborated with the Department of Ancient History, Macquarie University to produce a series of books of New Testament scholarship.
Nexus is the ACT research magazine. It goes out to all those in the ACT research community. It provides a place to communicate news and discuss ideas of interest to researchers in the Australasian theological academy. It contains reviews and in-depth articles. It also lists recent publications and coming events. It is also a good way to find out what is happening within the ACT and its affiliated colleges.
A number of the ACT Colleges have areas of specialisation and established Centres of Excellence. These are listed below.
