At Carey we pray that our graduates will be leaders, thinkers, and risk-takers; people who are innovative, globally aware, outward looking, and very God-dependent.
Carey is the only tertiary education organisation in Aotearoa, New Zealand delivering degree level study in applied theology. Carey’s faculty regularly engage at the forefront of ongoing international discussion and debate around the discipline of applied theology and its parameters, including its role in social cohesion.
Carey’s core academic programmes are at Bachelors’ and Masters’ degree levels, with earlier exit points built in. The qualifications recognise the social, work (employment), and societal contexts from which students come as an integral part of the learning conversation that develops during their studies.
The intended outcome of a student’s study is transformation – for the student and their leadership practice, as well as for the contexts in which they operate.
Carey offers certificates, diplomas and degree level programmes ideal for those looking to prepare for practical Christian ministry and mission.
The Carey Graduate School delivers Postgraduate qualifications. The aim of the School is the creation of thinking practitioners, scholars and leaders who will stimulate and resource new knowledge and fresh and critical thinking.
Carey specialises in training leaders for ministry and mission through our Pastoral Leadership Training, Youth Pastoral Leadership Training, Ethnic Ministry Leadership, Child & Family Leadership and Mission Track programmes.

Studying at Carey has been an exciting, challenging and transformative journey. Exciting because the courses offered are refreshing and stimulating, but at the same time very challenging.
As a disciple of Christ, my learning experience in both the Bachelor of Applied Theology and Diploma of Pastoral Leadership has equipped me to serve in my home, ministry and community more effectively
