Course content

This programme is addressed primarily to those either already involved in pastoral work, including leadership positions in Christian churches and organisations, or those interested in finding future employment in this area. It is unique in that it not only offers students an opportunity to gain a thorough and systematic training in methods and approaches in Pastoral Theology, but it also familiarises them with the academic discipline of Biblical Studies, including a focused and research based study of specific biblical texts as well as a broader perspective on themes in biblical theology.
