Our focus is on people who are committed to the Lord Jesus Christ, who love and respect the Bible as God’s word, are involved in advancing His kingdom through practical ministry and have a desire to develop these commitments further.
SATS offers biblically based, academically rigorous, and practically relevant programmes. Like Hugh of St. Vincent, we believe education is the pursuit of wisdom and virtue, both of which are ultimately found in Christ through friendship with God. We design our programmes and our courses with the dual ambition of being both informative and transformative. We strive to engage the text and the context, the Word and the world in ways that are God-glorifying and missional.
SATS is known for providing rich online learning experiences. Our MySats platform affords our students a world-class portal for e-learning, connecting you to your study materials, fellow students, course facilitator, library holdings, and assessment tasks. We aim to take the distance out of distance education by automating processes that can and should be instant, freeing our staff to offer fast and friendly service where the personal touch is needed.
We serve people who are committed to the Lord Jesus Christ, who love and respect the Word of God, and dedicate their lives to advancing the kingdom of God through practical ministry. Like Pierre de la Ramée, we believe that theology is ‘the doctrine of living well for God’.
Since all our teaching-and-learning takes place online, you will need regular, personal access to the Internet. SATS courses can be completed on a smartphone or a tablet, but a personal computer is desirable for writing longer essays.
Doctor of Philosophy in Theology
Our PhD is designed to raise up scholar-leaders in various fields of Christian ministry. It is a fully-accredited online programme that provides the opportunity for ground-breaking theological research.
Master of Theology
Our MTh is a research-based degree that is fully accredited and completely online. The degree takes the form of a substantial research project on a topic that is relevant to your life or ministry. You conduct the research under the guidance of a specialist supervisor.
Master of Divinity
We have received accreditation for a Master of Divinity programme. This is a two-year professional master’s degree designed for pastors. Since it does not require a prior degree in theology, it is the ideal gateway into advanced theological and ministerial training for second-career pastors.
Bachelor of Theology (Honours)
The BTh Honours is a one-year postgraduate degree that builds on a three-year degree. You would be likely to choose the BTh Honours for one of two reasons. Firstly, it serves as a bridge between Bachelor’s level coursework and Master’s level research.
