Major studies: Theology (the beliefs and practices of the major world religions including their ethics, politics, history, sacred scriptures and doctrines). Minor studies: Students may complete electives from a broad range of humanities and liberal arts disciplines such as classics, history, philosophy, sociology and anthropology.

Professional recognition: It will provide an academic foundation for students intending to enter priestly ministry or similar vocations, although to do so they will need to complete other professional accreditation and training requirements which are not part of this degree.

Career opportunities: Examples include religious ministry, chaplaincy, youth ministry, healthcare work, welfare, and religious teaching in schools and other educational organisations.
