BIBLICAL STUDIES

The Biblical Studies pathway, within which you will choose to complete the Old Testament or New Testament route, provides opportunities for developing and mastering skills in translation and exegesis at an advanced level. You will engage in rigorous and independent research of complex exegetical issues and in self-reflective examination of how the biblical text may be appropriated to complex and unpredictable situations in modern culture through application of contemporary hermeneutics. Additionally, the Biblical Studies pathway enables the student to investigate the tendenz of specific texts within the larger biblical and theological context, as well as in the tradition of the Adventist Church.

Modules To fulfil the requirements for this course you will need to successfully complete 180 credits, comprising: • 120 credits (six modules, 20 credits each) of taught modules from your chosen specialisation, and • a 60-credit 15,000-word research dissertation

You must complete NCTR7001 Biblical Hermeneutics (20 credits), plus a further 100 credits chosen from either the Old Testament or the New Testament pathway (samples listed below).

Not all modules are able to be offered every semester, or every year.
