Diploma of Theological Studies

The two-year Diploma of Theological Studies (Dip.Th.St.) program is designed for those who do not plan to enter the ministry of the Word but want to be trained for labour in related fields such as education and mission work.


One year of successfully completed university studies, preferably in the humanities, or a Teacher's College Diploma, or an equivalent, is required for admission to the courses for the Dip.Th.St. Knowledge of Hebrew, Greek and Latin is not required.

Course Requirements

Students enrolled in the Diploma of Theological Studies program take courses that are offered in the M.Div. program and the B.Th. program, including the B.Th. Elective courses. These courses will be adapted as necessary in order to suit the level and the expectations of the Diploma program.

The Dean of Students, in consultation with the student, will determine which courses are available and suitable for the student to take. It should be noted that not all courses taught in the M.Div. program are available for Diploma students (esp. courses that require knowledge of the Biblical languages.)

Students in this program are to accumulate a total of at least 55 credits, with a minimum of five in each of the five departments.
