Adelaide Campus Courses

Advice has been received from the Faculty of Theology and Philosophy that any prospective students, who have previously been studying at the Catholic Theological College in Adelaide, or making enquiries about undertaking a course through the new Adelaide campus, should be advised that they will need to apply for the relevant course to ACU directly and as follows:

It is critical that the student is directed to the appropriate Course Coordinator/Course Advisor:

  • Master of Theological Studies (Faculty of Theology and Philosophy program) - Dr. Gemma Cruz
  • Master of Religious Education (Faculty of Education program) - Dr. Jan Grajczonek
  • Master of Ed Leadership (Faculty of Education program) - Ms. Mariette Le Roux

Each student will have to talk over the question of potential credit with this advisor.
MRE and MEdL already have a credit arrangement in place for CTC (Flinders) units.
