Where this diploma might take you

- The Mission specialisation continues to focus on preparing people for cross-cultural and global mission.
- The Women’s Ministry specialisation provides opportunities for women to engage with historical and social issues with particular relevance for women’s ministry.
- The Music Ministry specialisation provides opportunities for those involved in music ministry to engage with theological and historical issues of church music and to develop skills in music leadership and worship.
Graduates with the Advanced Diploma may be eligible to proceed to the second year of the College’s BD or BTh programs.
