Course details

Summary

Carey’s Master of Applied Theology provides an advanced theological qualification for those who are committed to career-long education.

The Masters aims to support professional development for pastors, including senior pastors, and other Christian ministry and missional practitioners who have high levels of curriculum knowledge, research skills, and leadership capacity.

In addition the academic programme aims to equip students interested in advancing academic scholarship and research in the field of applied theology. It is therefore also intended as a pathway for those interested in continuing on to doctoral studies, particularly through one of the established pathways Carey has with Auckland University of Technology, Otago University, or other tertiary institutions.

There are three different starting points to the Masters of Applied Theology depending on your prior education and experience. The full programme is a 240 credit (two years full-time) and there are options for a 180 credit and 120 credit (thesis only) programme of study.

120 Credit thesis only:

This could be the option for you if you have an undergraduate Bachelor of Theology and a Postgraduate Diploma in Theology and have studied Postgraduate Research Methods.

180 Credits:

Parts of your ministry experience might count towards prior learning, as well as any post graduate study you have already done.

  • Ability to critique scholarly publications in applied theology
  • Demonstrate critical skills in the interpretation of Biblical texts, demonstrating sound theological evaluation.
  • Critically reflect on current societal issues from informed Biblical and theological perspectives
  • Critically evaluate contexts in order to identify strengths and weaknesses, and suggest possible ways forward to better meet the needs of communities
  • Work collaboratively with (and within) communities to achieve learning and research outcomes.

  • Be self managing, able to plan for and achieve research goals
