PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

The New Zealand Diploma in Christian Studies (Level 5) – Intercultural Strand – (Communication and Media Track) prepares students for missions and ministry through practical, hands-on projects run through our ministry and TESOL colleges. This unique programme encourages students to build character, competence, and capability personally, spiritually and professionally with special focus on teaching practice in the area of ESOL.

 

Graduate Profile Outcomes (GPO’s) this programme meets include:

  • Evaluate and apply a broad understanding of theology and biblical foundations to defined contexts based on textual interpretation and religious practice.
  • Use intercultural skills and practices to bridge gaps among communities.
  • Evaluate a ministry programme based on strategies that integrate personal and community faith journeys, and the social, cultural and other contextual considerations of defined groups.
  • Provide necessary services in specific roles required of local and global ministry, mission organisations, non-governmental and social services organisations and intercultural communities.

The Intercultural Studies Strand is composed of four ministry courses and two to three arts courses and is ideal for students who want to become a leader in the creation of digital media. Students are required to complete:

Intercultural Communication and Organisational Behaviour

In Intercultural Communications, students are equipped with an understanding of the role of culture and communication in business and gain an applied understanding of cross-cultural communication in a business context.

Self & Others: Sociology & Media Studies

This course aims to introduce an overview of sociology and media studies as personal lenses to understand the social world and interpret media messages.

Certificate in TESOL (Post 5 week course)

A TESOL Certificate provides you with the skills to teach English to students whose first language is not English. Lifeway College provides a range of TESOL qualifications. This course, approved by New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA), is more suitable to non-native speakers whose English language level is not up to the advanced level necessary to pass the Trinity standard.

Both Certificate courses share most of the input lessons, but the Assignment requirement and Teaching Practices are different.

VOCATIONAL PATHWAYS

Industries and professions that benefit include:

  • Management, ministry and leadership positions within churches.
  • Film, animation and media positions in secular organisations.
