January 2019 intake ongoing.
The Bachelor of Theology, SCU’s most popular programme, provides quality training for pastors, Christian educators, missionaries, and church leaders. Extensive coursework in Biblical Studies and Theological Studies lay a solid foundation for courses in General Studies and Ministry Studies, where biblical and theological truths are applied and contextualized to holistic ministry in an African context. The B.Th. is offered as a four-year full-time programme, but is also available in a school-based mode of study for those who are unable to enroll full-time.
Both the Dip.Th. and B.Th. also entail requirements outside the classroom that contribute to the formation of the student in not only knowledge, but skills and character as well. Field Education provides students with weekly opportunities to grow in the practice of ministry in local church contexts. Learning Contracts, which are completed under the supervision of faculty mentors, enable students to focus on key areas of personal growth in Christlikeness, such as character formation, discipleship, and servant leadership. A 10-week internship provides a context for the student to apply their cumulative learning under faculty supervision.
