Seminary Syllabus

At present, Tyrannus Online Seminary offers two academic programs, the Diploma of Theology (DipTh) and the Bachelor of Theology (BTh). The DipTh requires 72 credit hours while the BTh requires 108 credit hours. The Tyrannus BTh syllabus is modelled like a 3 year full-time BTh program and the modules will be repeated before a cycle is completed.
