About the Theology Programme

The Theology programme is the only university-based theology programme in New Zealand and draws on a rich heritage of over 60 years of theological education.

Teaching Theology

Our courses are taught by committed staff who are accomplished teachers and scholars.

In teaching Theology we assume no particular denominational or theological perspective.

Engaging in the discipline of Theology involves a detailed exploration of the ways in which questions about God, about Jesus, about humanity and about our world have been addressed by people of faith.

How You Can Study Theology

We offer a specialised degree in Theology: the Bachelor of Theology, which is designed to give you both breadth and depth within the discipline.

Biblical Studies and Christian Thought and History can be taken as major subjects in the Bachelor of Arts degree. Theology papers can be included in other study programmes.A backpack in the Transitional Cathedral in Christchurch

There is no end to the value gained from a few papers or a whole degree in Theology.

We teach our papers on campus and by distance, in both semesters, and sometimes in Summer School.
