Diploma Full-time
Diploma Full-Time

For the first year, teaching takes place alongside students doing the Certificate. After this, the Diploma goes into greater depth than the Certificate, building on foundational areas, and beginning to shift focus to a more contextual approach. This means that we begin with issues and conflicts that arise in the world and the church, then learn how our theology can both help us address those issues - and at the same time, how our theology might grow deeper as we engage with these issues.
