About Carey Graduate School
We are so excited that you are considering being part of our research community. Postgraduate study in the Carey community will allow you to go deeply into questions and issues that are crucial for Christian life, leadership and mission today.
Carey offers two programmes, Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Theology and Master of Applied Theology, which you can pursue on either a full-time or part-time basis.
These programmes are designed for ministry and mission leaders, as well as for those who love learning and want to explore theology to a higher level. Both programmes will give you the opportunity to engage in focused research that addresses questions important to you and your context.
With Carey’s strong commitment to whakawhanaungatanga, you will experience a rich and dynamic research community in which staff and students journey together. Our integrative approach to theology will ensure that your learning brings together faith, context and practice in ways that can transform both you and your community.
Our courses run for the whole year and are taught as block intensives over a few days. This means that, outside those short windows, you have flexibility as to when and where you study, fitting it in around the demands of your life, or your ministry calendar.
We offer scholarships and funding options to support your study.
We believe you will find learning through these programmes deeply stimulating and enriching, both for your leadership and the community you serve. Climb higher, see further, resource the church.
