By helping to develop insight into the world in which missionary works take place, the Graduate School of Christian Education, on the basis of both theology and education, strives to cultivate teaching ministers aware of peace, human rights and ecology in a holistic manner as means of confronting the real-world problems that threaten the creation order of God. The Graduate School is divided four majors: theology of education, philosophy of Christian education, lifelong Christian education, and church education. Students are allowed to select one of these majors in their second semester after admission. Since 2011, a course for training lifelong educators has been established within the curriculum of the Graduate School. Students who complete 15 credits during the graduate course are able to obtain a certificate as a 2nd grade lifelong educator.

Our Graduate School aims to train education experts at the vanguard of the practice of the mission of God in the world, based on ecumenical theology.
