Carey holds an annual Research Conference as a celebration of applied theological research and academic dialogue amongst staff, supervisors and students.

A student with a non-theological undergraduate degree who is seeking admission to postgraduate study may be required to enrol in the Graduate Diploma programme as a bridge to postgraduate study. In this case the student will be prescribed an individual programme of study in relevant subject areas and levels to ensure a firm foundation in Biblical and Theological Studies
The content of the papers in the Masters of Applied Theology has been excellent. I’ve found the courses have been personally formative and added depth to my work as a pastor in a Baptist church in Wellington. I’d recommend post-graduate study at Carey to anyone looking to develop and enhance ministry praxis.
