The Degree of Bachelor of Theology (Hons)

The Degree of Bachelor of Theology (Hons) is a two-year, part-time programme designed for students who have obtained an undergraduate degree in theology at NQF level 7 and who wish to further their qualifications at postgraduate level and ultimately gain access to further postgraduate study at Master’s level (NQF Level 9).

Specialised and in-depth study

The course is designed for learners requiring a more specialised and in-depth study of the teachings of the Christian faith within an integrating Catholic intellectual tradition. It will guide learners to deepen their own spirituality and will also furnish them with more specialised skills that are deemed essential for leading a Christian community. The uniqueness of the course lies in its full-contact delivery offered in English in a comprehensive theological programme in which the majority of the intended learners are lay people. It is also of value in offering the academic component required by students preparing for ordained Christian ministry.
St Augustine also offers a range of degrees in Theology at the Postgraduate level: BTh (Hons), MPhil (Theology), DPhil (Theology)
