The Bachelor of Divinity degree (BD) is a specialist course in Divinity which equips students for handling all of the main theological disciplines with particular emphasis on Biblical Studies and Biblical Languages. An integrated curriculum ensures a solid basis for postgraduate theological study or vocational ministry of various sorts. For First-year (or Level 1) modules initiate students into Biblical Studies (including the biblical languages), Systematic Theology, Church History and Practical Theology. Building on this foundation and incorporating an element of choice, level-2 modules enable students to read Greek and Hebrew texts and consolidate their knowledge, skills and tools across the range of Theology's sub-disciplines. In their final year, while Practical Theology modules help all students explore interfaces with the contemporary Church, society or world, students also have an opportunity to specialise in one or more areas of Divinity. Through the BD programme, students develop sophisticated thinking and communication skills which are suited not only to Christian ministry or mission but to a variety of professional situations.
What Our Students Say
"I have really appreciated the opportunity to study the Bible in the original languages. It is so rewarding to engage with a second century manuscript in class and be able to draw understanding from it."Nathan Wallace
