Master of Ministry

Master of Ministry – CSU Campus Sydney – Parramatta

This Master of Ministry course is specifically designed for religious practitioners. Assessment and project tasks may be shaped by the student around their own ministry context. This provides an opportunity to bring new insight to the tasks of ministry and to apply critical enquiry to contemporary issues in ministry.

A Bachelor of Theology or a Graduate Diploma of Theology (with a Credit average), plus two years experience in ministry (pre- or post-degree) are the minimum entry requirements. Please contact the course co-ordinator if you are unsure about your eligibility.

For those who are looking toward a Doctor of Ministry, the Master of Ministry offers a research stream which, upon successful completion and the attainment of a Distinction average across the degree, will qualify you for entry to the Doctor of Ministry programme.
