Bachelor of Theology

Undergraduate Course

About this Course

The primary goal of Tabor’s Bachelor of Theology course is to develop graduates who are creative theological thinkers, and nurture in them an ability to draw critically on the biblical witness and traditions of the church.

Throughout the course, students will develop a comprehensive understanding of the Christian Scriptures, Christian theology and the history of the church. Students are also given an opportunity to deepen their knowledge in a specialised field by taking an eight subject major in biblical studies, theology studies or ministry.

The degree offers an intentional opportunity for personal growth and development through our unique program of formation.  This strand of the course encourages students to see their studies as not only a time of academic challenge, but also a period of ongoing spiritual enrichment.

Professional Outcomes

Graduates may find employment in local churches as congregational pastors with responsibility for preaching, teaching and leadership. Please speak to the course co-ordinator to discuss pathway options in preparation for application for ordination with your chosen denominational body. The degree also provides an ideal basis for post graduate study in the field of Theology, which may lead to employment within Australian Christian tertiary education institutions.
