Bachelor of Theology
Australian Catholic University - Brisbane

Course outline

Engage critically with the Catholic intellectual tradition, and explore questions of knowledge, identity, and value. You will develop an understanding of the complex realities of religion across history, while gaining insight into contemporary challenges. Study systematic theology, ministry, liturgy, ancient languages, biblical studies, studies of religion and philosophy – with the flexibility to choose units from other disciplines.

Global experience is encouraged as part of your learning, with study abroad opportunities available at our Rome Campus, with one of our partner institutions in Europe or the United States, or as part of a study tour.

Graduate with a wide range of adaptable skills, including an enhanced capacity to analyse, critically reflect, evaluate, and bring ethical perspectives to life and work. You will also build your communication skills, grow your capacity to evaluate and discriminate between multiple viewpoints, and develop and articulate compelling arguments (both orally and in writing).
