Message from the Director

Welcome

mature age students

The School of Christian Studies is central to the development of students at Alphacrucis. At the core of each of our programs is the deliberate integration of Christian faith into all areas of study and preparation for future vocation.

Our challenge to prospective students is to envision a better future for our rapidly changing world and seriously consider their role in this process of transformation. Yet, how do we know what a transformed community and world should look like? What is our role in this task? While there are many voices in society that offer alternative views, we believe the task of Christian leaders is to provide a creative and thoughtful response.

This response should be based on an understanding of the Bible, theology, history and culture. That is exactly what we offer within the School of Christian Studies – a foundational worldview from a Christian perspective. We equip you with the tools for creative and critical thinking. We provide practical application and skills acquisition which will enable you to live with integrity; where your theology matches your practice.

Our faculty is a dynamic team of world-class researchers and educators. They combine specialist knowledge, active research and professional experience to provide holistic education that emphasizes active learning and practical application.

The task is before us. Along with our faculty, I welcome you to join us as we seek to transform our world!

What makes us unique?

A Transformative Learning Experience

Alphacrucis creates an environment for excellence in learning. Our highly qualified and experienced faculty combine specialist knowledge, creative delivery and practical insights. This produces an inspiring and innovative classroom experience with solid content.

We advocate a holistic approach to education through active learning. Our education is not about simply transferring information. It is about meeting students where they are at and building their understanding. This involves providing students with a critical knowledge of subjects; skills in problem-solving; people skills and conflict negotiation through group work; the ability to think through complex issues; and, the ability to effectively communicate to a large range of audiences.

Flexible Learning

Alphacrucis offers subjects in 4 different modes of study. All offer a different kind of experience.

Face-to-Face (FTF) These subjects are available on campus and offer weekly face-to-face lectures throughout the semester supported by on-line reading, tests and exercises. A great way to become part of the Alphacrucis community.

Intensive (INT) When a subject is offered in intensive mode all the face-to-face lecturing is compiled in 4 or 5 full consecutive days (one week full time). Many of our Master Classes are offered in Intesive mode to facilitate students who combine studying with a full-time job.

Extensive (EXT) When a subject is offered in extensive mode the face-to-face lecturing is compiled in 4 or 5 full-days spread out over the semester.

Flexible Delivery (FD) Flexible delivery is developed for students who cannot attend the face-to-face lectures. We offer access to our Learning Management System which offers e-learning facilities such as course materials, lectures via podcasts, CD or DVD. Our online tutors, blogs and discussion forums enable these student to participate in lively discussions and be part of the Alphacrucis community.
