The Master of Theology offers five areas of study, of which students must choose three. Courses consist of lectures, seminars, sessions and course work. It should be noted that students who wish to join the ministry must choose practical theology. The programme is designed to provide students with extensive knowledge and specific skills in the various fields of theology.
