Graduate School of Theology

The Graduate School of Theology occupies a unique and important place as a center for religious studies in Japan where the number of institutions that offer opportunities to study religions academically is limited. The Graduate School of Theology provides programs of study leading to the degrees of Master of Theology and Doctor of Theology. The M. Th. Program is divided into five major courses of study: Biblical Theology, Historical Theology, Systematic Theology, Practical Theology, and Interdisciplinary Study of Monotheistic Religions.
The Biblical Theology Course aims to understand and interpret the Bible by analyzing the texts in their social and cultural settings. The Historical Theology Course is concerned with the historical development of diverse Christian beliefs, practices, and communities. The Systematic Theology Course deals both with clear understanding of various religious thoughts and with their meaning for and relevance to the problems with which our society is faced. The Practical Theology Course enables students to prepare theoretically and practically for such careers as ministry, education, and social work. The Interdisciplinary Study of Monotheistic Religions Course undertakes interdisciplinary and comprehensive research on Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and their civilizations in the search for co-existence among diverse religious traditions.
