Research at AC banner


Alphacrucis College (AC) faculty are committed to research that shows the continued relevance of the Christian scriptures and traditions for the modern world, brings practical benefit to the church, and contributes to the flourishing of Australian and global society. The Research and Scholarship Plan outlines the objectives and projects within AC Research.

Our higher degree research (HDR) programs include a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Doctor of Ministry (DMin) and Master of Philosophy (MPhil). You can study in Theology, Business, or Education.

Our Research Foci point to our areas of research specialisation, in alignment with the ethos and strategic goals of AC. If you would see our foci in full, including associated Field of Education and Field of Research codes please see, AC Research Foci

AC's Dean of Business, Professor Paul Oslington along with research assistants Nick Jensen and Ingrid Ryan, have completed a project to develop an evidence-based ranking of theology and religion journals. This journal ranking has been endorsed by the Council of Deans of Theology and ANZATS and was financially supported by the Australian Research Theology Foundation and several Higher Education institutions. The journal ranking is open-access and can be found here Religion and Theology Journal Rank 2019

An analysis of ARC Grants in Religion and Theology, prepared by Nick Jensen under the supervision of Paul Oslington, is also available: Analysis of ARC Grants in Theology 2002-18
