Diploma in Practical Theology

To graduate with this diploma, you will complete two years of study with two main areas of focus: developing a faith foundation, and exploring your interests. You will dive into your Christian faith, investigating the Scriptures, Christian theology, history, and mission. You will choose from a series of classes designed to give you a broad introduction to a variety of subjects, tailoring your diploma to fit your interests and to prepare you for your next steps.

At 63 credits, the Diploma in Practical Theology can be completed in two years if you are willing to work hard and plan your courses carefully. If you prefer to have a significant part-time job or have other commitments, you are also welcome to finish your diploma at a slower pace.

What is Practical Theology?

Our theology (what we believe to be true about God) only matters when it permeates every part of who we are: our priorities, our lifestyle, our relationships, our identity, and our vocation. This is why Columbia takes such a balanced approach to education. Learn more about Columbia’s approach to the BA in Practical Theology.

    “The CBC community has been amazing throughout all three years that I have been here. CBC community is like a second family. There were always opportunities to meet new people at different events on campus. As an athlete it was always awesome to see everyone come out to games and support us. The CBC community is supportive, encouraging, and welcoming.

    CBC has given me a greater appreciation and understanding of the Bible. I have learned the importance of applying hermeneutics to understand the original meaning of scripture. Interpreting scripture allows us to have a deeper understanding and closer relationship with God. Allowing scripture to be applied to all areas and circumstances in life.”
