Alphacrucis College is committed to active research in the core disciplines of Theology, Business, and Arts, Education and Social Science. Within these, our faculty members and research candidates engage with a variety of fields such as Old and New Testament Studies, Spirituality, Theology, Leadership, Business, Economics, Music, Pastoral Ministry, Accounting, Education, Counselling, History, and Communication. Here's a list of our Faculty.

AC Research facilitates, coordinates and promotes a culture of research and innovation, with the goal of producing outputs that are beneficial to their respective academic disciplines, to the church, and to society at large. In addition to our Higher Degree Research program, the Biennial International Conference, a Ministry Research Conference, Colloquia and Research Roundtables are integral elements of AC research. Additionally, our research centres – the Australasian Pentecostal Studies Centre, the Centre for the Future of Schooling, and the Centre for Learning and Scholarship Skills produce research and scholarship that makes valuable contributions to the broader academy, community and professional bodies.

We encourage you to undertake your Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Doctor of Ministry (DMin) or Master of Philosophy (MPhil) with us. You can study in one of our three Faculties: Theology (Systematic Theology, Biblical studies & languages, Missiology, Pastoral Theology), Arts, Education and Social Science (primary and secondary education, history, social science) or Business (leadership, communication, organisational development). These degrees are accredited by TEQSA, the Australian Government's higher education accreditation body.
