The Master of Chaplaincy at University of Otago is designed as a professional qualification for those who serve as chaplains in a variety of settings and who seek advanced professional education to enhance their work, and for those who want to train to be chaplains.
The admission requirements are a degree or equivalent three-year qualification with satisfactory grades. In cases where a person’s prior qualifications do not include theological study, he or she may be required to undertake one or more 300-level papers in theology in order to satisfy the prerequisites for specific 400-level papers in Biblical Studies (BIBS) and/or Christian Thought and History (CHTH).
The coursework component of the degree consists of six 20-point 400-level taught papers, of which three are core papers in the area of Chaplaincy and three are selected from a list of additional papers offered in the areas of Biblical Studies, Christian Thought and History and Ministry Studies.
