Carey Graduate School

Carey’s postgraduate qualifications are designed to serve the needs of a range of students – those who wish to advance their knowledge and practice in applied theology; those engaged in professional roles associated with Christian ministry who wish to advance their knowledge and skills in these fields; those wanting to pursue an academic career with an emphasis in applied theology; those who are pastors, missionaries, or senior staff in Christian Non-Government Organisations (NGO’s) and related fields who wish to enhance their leadership through study in applied biblical and theological study.

Carey’s Graduate School offers several postgraduate study options:

Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Theology & Master of Applied Theology

Carey’s Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Theology and Master of Applied Theology provide advanced theological qualifications for practitioners committed to career-long education.

The programmes aim to support professional development for pastors and other Christian ministry practitioners who have high levels of curriculum knowledge, research skills and leadership capacity. In addition the programmes aim to equip students interested in advancing academic scholarship and research in the field of applied theology.

Master of Philosophy & Doctor of Philosophy (through AUT University)

Carey has an agreement with AUT University to sponsor students and supervise MPhil and PhD theses in all areas of biblical, theological, and applied theology. There is increased potential for students to conduct interdisciplinary research through this relationship. potential candidates should consult with the Head of Carey Graduate School as well as reading the relevant publications of AUT.

You can choose how and where you study with our flexible study options – Distance, Block courses, Part-time or Full-time.
