Articulation to Other SCD Awards
The Associate Degree of Christian Thought and Practice is both a stand-alone award and a nested award in the Bachelor of Theology. As a result it articulates directly into the Bachelor of Theology. On completion of the BTh the student would surrender their Associate Degree of Christian Thought and Practice. The exception would be if there was no credit granted into the BTh for the units in the Associate Degree of Christian Thought and Practice.
