Welcome to the The South African Theological Seminary (SATS) which is a fully accredited and registered, distance education institution, focusing on equipping you for service, right where you are in your local church.
- Biblically-based, Christ-centred, Spirit-led
- Credits for prior learning and experience
- Enrol at any time of the year
- Pay as you go.
Our mission is to provide Biblical, Christocentric distance education and training to Christians, and leaders in particular, within their local church environment, to equip them to be Holy Spirit empowered members of God’s household
We want to give you the widest possible choice when it comes to selecting your programme and your courses. If you want solid equipping without an academic approach, then click on the Crossroads tab below. If you are looking for a fairly short programme specialising in equipping for ministry, counselling or worship, then one of the Higher Certificate programmes will have just what you need. The other tabs will take you to the Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral programmes, where you will find all the information you require.
SATS offers following degrees:
- Bachelor of Theology: The Undergraduate School ensures that Christians with a calling to ministry can receive a sound foundation in both biblical and ministry-related courses.
- Master of Theology: The Postgraduate School of the South African Theological Seminary proudly offers our outstanding Master of Theology programme, designed to produce competent leaders who have expert knowledge in a particular field and are able to serve God effectively as pastors, missionaries, teachers or leaders.
- Doctor of Philosophy in Theology : The Postgraduate School of the South African Theological Seminary offers with pride our Doctor of Philosophy programme, designed to raise up leaders, scholars and ground breakers in various fields of Christian ministry.
