What can I study?

Pilgrim is an accredited college of the University of Divinity and delivers undergraduate and postgraduate courses, as well as higher degrees by research.

Our subjects cover the various dimensions of theology, including offerings in Biblical Studies, Christian Thought and History, Practical Theology (including liturgy, missiology, spirituality), and in the broader humanities, including Philosophy in particular.

Audit enrolment or non-credit study is also available for those who are seeking to enrich their knowledge and gain access to the unit resources, but not participate in formal assessment.

Whatever the particular style of your lecturer (or team of lecturers), material for our classes will engage your imagination and enable your understanding.

The faculty undertakes regular professional development to hone their skills in adult education and to share new approaches. We offer weekly three-hour classes through the semesters, as well as intensives and online modes.

In class you will meet a diverse group of colleagues from a range of church and community backgrounds. Some are picking up a subject to extend their professional interests; others are studying purely for interest.

You will be encouraged to think for yourself and to explore new perspectives in a friendly and committed learning environment. Whether online or on campus, the emphasis is on interaction that ensures successful outcomes for each student.

Pilgrim learning hubs provide a face-to-face learning community and additional support for online students in the same geographical area. Pioneered by UCA congregations in Heidleberg and Horsham, they are gradually expanding to other parts of Melbourne and Victoria.
