New Tertiary Awards in 2014
Alphacrucis College (AC) announces the launch of new vocational and higher education awards, commencing first semester 2014.
AC introduces a new flagship program - Bachelor of Business/Bachelor of Ministry – the first double-degree of its kind in Australia.
“This dual discipline program has been designed to meet the demand for an undergraduate business program integrated with ethics and theology,” said Professor Paul Oslington, Professor of Economics and Dean of Business at Alphacrucis College; and Adjunct Professor of Economics at Australian Catholic University.
“This is the first combined business and ministry double-degree in Australia, and marks a significant breakthrough in Christian higher education.”
Commencing in 2014, the Bachelor of Business/Bachelor of Ministry is accredited by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) - Australia's independent regulator of the higher education sector. The BBus/BMin will be delivered at AC Central in Parramatta as well as through AC's Global Online campus.
“The BBus/BMin reflects both the burgeoning growth of the Australian Christian Churches movement and the increasing role Christian institutions play in providing important services in our education, health and social services sectors,” said Professor Oslington, who's extensive research framed the design of this four-year program. He has authored numerous academic publications, including Economics and Religion (2003), Adam Smith as Theologian (2011) and Oxford Handbook of Economics and Christianity (2013).
Dr. Stephen Fogarty, AC Principal and CEO, says the College aims to provide more study options for students in Australia and abroad who are seeking university-level education.
“Our innovation in program content and delivery at AC is contributing to a better standard for both Christian education, and tertiary education in Australia as a whole.” said Dr. Fogarty.
“Our mandate as a Christian college compels us to widen the scope of our education delivery. This is reflected by our new undergraduate business courses where, much like all our programs, leadership in ethical practice and social justice are in the crosshairs of our focus. That is AC's unique distinctive.”
