Australian College of Theology

Diploma Program

Would you like more confidence in sharing your faith, teaching the Bible or understanding how to respond to some of the big issues facing the Church?


MST’s Diploma of Christian Studies has been specifically designed for people who haven’t studied for a while, or who may not be quite ready for degree-level Biblical studies. Many are attracted to our diploma streams because they easily fit into a busy schedule and at the same time lay a solid, scriptural foundation for your life.

Within the diploma course, you will study some of the most important and foundational themes relating to Christian life and practice. Discover how theology has developed throughout history, gain an understanding of the social and political contexts in the Early Church, and learn how to understand scripture in light of both Old and New Testaments. The MST Diploma will deepen your faith and strengthen your confidence in the Scriptures while it equips you for a variety of exciting ministry opportunities.

A wide range of assessment methods are used within the course. As MST is governed by the Australian College of Theology, your studies will also be recognised internationally and will give you credit points towards a degree if you choose to further your training. Fee-Help is available to Australian residents.
