Level of study: Graduate Certificates
The Graduate Certificate in Arts (GCA) is a four-subject award designed for those who are already qualified in another field, and are looking to further their theological knowledge, and those with an undergraduate education looking to broaden their knowledge in the Humanities.
Based on the principle of integration, the GCA includes cutting-edge Christian thought to guide you in reflecting on your faith in contemporary, community and vocational contexts. Embarking upon a GCA with AC means you will be able to demonstrate an ability to apply knowledge from different elective areas, in a range of contexts, to undertake advanced professional or ministry positions.
This course is a nested award in the Master of Arts, meaning it can be a stand-alone course or an exit point, thus allowing flexibility for students who may wish to start with a short postgraduate course before committing to a Master of Arts.
