About This Course
The Graduate Diploma in Divinity has proven to be a worthwhile choice for those seeking a flexible and accommodating study option which awakens and inspires a greater passion for Christian ministry and service.
The program places particular focus on the Christian scriptures, theology and church history. Comprising six (6) core subjects and two (2) elective subjects, Tabor’s Graduate Diploma in Divinity provides a more comprehensive program than the Graduate Certificate – the core subjects deliver a comprehensive syllabus to broaden the student’s understanding, while electives allow space for students to pursue their choice of professional and educational outcomes.
The breadth of the award makes it ideal for people who are exploring their calling, studying with specific vocational goals in mind (e.g., Christian teachers looking to broaden their employment opportunities), as well as those who plan to use their learning in a variety of different Christian ministry contexts. Graduates may find employment in local churches in associate leadership roles or as lay leaders.
