UNIT OUTLINES

Religious Education

Religious Education units at Campion College are studied as part of the Graduate Certificate in Religious Education (Primary). This serves as a foundational, ‘stand-alone’ qualification and as a pathway for further learning in theological studies. For students already with teaching qualifications, it provides an opportunity for professional development. Students enrolled in this course complete RED501, RED502, RED503 and RED504.

Individuals who do not wish to enrol in a full course may enrol in single units as a Miscellaneous or Auditing student.
