  8) The University's graduate school is a possibility after graduation. After earning a master's degree in theology, affiliated sister institutions in the United States, such as New York Theological Seminary offer several potential pathways for interested students.

  Christian studies, as outlined above, provides an excellent educational system, in the perfect learning environment. Theology, as well as related subjects (Philosophy, Social Work, English Literature, History, Education, Psychology) provides a chance for a double major and minor. Our dormitory environment, libraries, campus, varieties of worship, mission, community service and extracurricular activities enhanced by the university's vision, will enable students to reap rewards. Christian Theological Studies students specialize in becoming pastors or teachers in missionary schools, or as Christian social workers, counselors, youth and community service experts.

 

2. History
   Christian Studies (Theology), according to the school's foundational principles, which are based upon the spirit of belief in the Triune God, was founded in 1981. Since then Christian Studies has produced in excess of 600 pastors and lay leader graduates. A high standard of education has become our priority. Since the establishment of the Department of Christian Studies, providing excellent academic education, under the guidance of highly motivated theological studies professors, a sound evangelical theology has been our pursuit. In addition, developmental funds secured since 2003 have benefited numerous students. Since 2007, Christian Studies, having changed its departmental profile, is enabling students to progress to seminaries and graduate schools, some of them overseas. One the one hand, our graduates may become seminary students and pastors to schools (general and special pastors, missionaries, chaplain, etc.), and on the other hand graduates are able to gain employment as Christian Social Workers, Youth Instructors, counselors and educators.
