Course highlights

CSU's globally recognised Bachelor of Theology fosters the search for meaning and spiritual depth in the context of cultural and religious pluralism in contemporary Australia.

Connect history with emerging practice

Learn about ways in which God speaks, explore ways the Church has spoken about God, reflect carefully on your speech about God, and combine theory with practice in communicating God's care for the world in your own contexts. Study support is readily available throughout your exploration of theology and we're here to help.

Build strong theological foundations

Be introduced to four main sub-disciplines of theology through Biblical studies, church history, systematic and practical theology subjects. You'll also have the opportunity to choose elective subjects within these disciplines allowing you to tailor your study to meet your interests.

Take your learning experience to your community

Deepen your faith and understanding in the context in which you live and work as you develop frameworks for critical and constructive engagement in church and society. To enable you to pursue ordination or other forms of ministry, the course is offered in conjunction with St Mark's National Theological Centre in Canberra, the United Theological College in North Parramatta, St Francis' Theological College in Brisbane and St Barnabas' College in Adelaide.

Enrich your theology learning with another area of interest

You can choose to study theology subjects only or integrate your study with another area of interest to enrich your learning. Choosing subjects that are vocationally oriented, ecumenically sensitive and integrated with practical experience will help you pursue ordination or professional ministry. There is a wide range of learning opportunities if you wish to explore your faith and beliefs as well as those of other traditions.
