EdD(Child & Family Development)

Entry requirements

Applicants for the EdD(C&FD) need to meet these prerequisites:

  • At least 3-5 years relevant experience in a child and family-focused venture.
  • Currently in (or about to take up) a significant leadership position in an organisation/institution with a focus on service among children and families, and in which enhanced Christian perspectives play a substantial role.
  • A tertiary degree from a recognised institution. Normally this will be a masters-level qualification in child and family development or a related discipline (e.g. one of the social sciences). However, tertiary qualifications in other disciplines will also be considered.
  • Able to demonstrate reasonable competency in biblical/theological thinking. Formal theological qualifications (e.g. MDiv) will be beneficial.
  • English language proficiency: at least IELTS 6.0 or TOEFL 550 (Computer-based score 213; Internet-based score 80).
  • Be commended for the EdD(C&FD) program by reputable leaders who know you professionally, academically and personally.

Participants may live in countries other than those represented by AGST Alliance.

Normally students will be accepted into AGST Alliance programs on the basis of the stated prerequisite qualifications.

However, applicants who do not meet the stated entry requirements may be considered for this program if their general education, scholarship, training and experience are deemed suitable, and if they are deemed as well qualified as those who are able to satisfy the normal entrance requirements.

Applications based on equivalency will be considered on a case-by-case basis, taking into account a portfolio of work/ministry experience, publications and other relevant factors.
