Master of Theology (Biblical Studies)

Postgraduate Diploma in Biblical Studies

We regret this program will not be offered until further notice


AGST Alliance’s post-graduate biblical studies programs are designed to produce graduates who are competent to ‘rightly handle the word of truth’ – opening the Bible with people clearly and contextually, so that individuals and societies (especially in Asia) are transformed.

  • This may be in church/Christian organisation settings – where there is a great need for pastors and Church leaders to use the Bible more confidently and with greater relevance in teaching and preaching. (Pastoral emphasis)
  • Or, it may be in Bible schools and theological colleges – where faculty are needed who are able to teach with confidence the biblical courses of the curriculum, and so enhance leadership for the ministry and mission of the Asian Church. (Academic emphasis)


This program is non-residential, modular and part-time

  • No need for major ministry and family upheavals for several years.
  • Studies are earthed in students’ current social and church settings.
  • Some flexibility is possible.

The program is designed for part-time students, but it is possible for someone to complete the program as a fulltime student. Contact the Biblical Studies Program Director to discuss the logistics of being a fulltime MTh(Bib. Studies) student.


The Postgraduate Diploma in Biblical Studies is for those who wish to complete the coursework for the MTh(Bib. Studies) program but not the thesis/major papers.

The Postgrad. Dip. Bib. Studies is a credible qualification, giving recognition for achieving at the MTh level.
