BGST offers a carefully curated blend of traditional subjects, such as biblical studies, systematic theology, church history, and contemporary topics, like courses on vocation, popular culture and marketplace ministry. We seek to help our fellow Christians both learn about their faith and reflect critically on the pertinent concerns of our times so they understand why the Christian faith matters in their everyday life.

Complimentary Graduate Diploma (Accredited)

Our Graduate Diplomas introduces some of the main theological disciplines and offers courses which address the practicalities of living for God in Asia in the 21st century.

The Grad DipCS forms half of the Master in Christian Studies (MCS) programme and a third of the Master of Divinity (MDiv) programme.

The Grad DipCS is right for you if:

You want a substantial intro to Biblical Studies, Hermeneutics, Systematic Theology, Church History, Christian Spirituality and Intercultural Studies
You want more in-depth training without enrolling in a Masters programme
You want more thorough training on how to reflect theologically, grow spiritually and integrate your faith with all areas of life.

BNG Partner churches who have unlocked complimentary Graduate Diplomas can use their free voucher towards our GradDipCS programme. Learn more about our graduate diplomas and other programmes here.
