PGD Christian Theology

The curriculum of PGD Christian Theology is designed to hold in balance learning and morality. It creates a meeting point for the heart and the mind, with strong bias for Christian religious and theological values. It offers you a unique opportunity to achieving eternal values, which has begun in the here-and-now of human endeavours. It emphasises the continued vision and mission of the Church in Nigeria for a better society.

The programme fills the gap for basic and advanced moral and theological education in Nigeria, forestalling the mass exodus of Nigerians for theological educations abroad, which are not even accessible and affordable to all. The programme is planned to benefit people, who are currently involved with inter-religious dialogue projects, for teachers in tertiary institutions and missionaries world-wide.



PGD Christian Theology as a programme aims to:

  • provide the learners with general knowledge about the different types of Theology and their significance in interpersonal relationship.
  • assist the learners to acquire the skill for Biblical and Theological interpretation of their faith and beliefs.
  • help learners develop independent and critical thinking.
  • offer an excellent qualification for graduates who intend to apply Christian theology in their professional lives.
  • guide graduates in the pursuit of research in Christian Theology and Christian Religious Studies.


On completion of the programme, the learner would be able to:

  • take up any aspect of church ministry effectively,
  • apply their faith to daily living,
  • counsel other Christians effectively,
  • aspire for further studies in Christian Religious Studies and
  • interpret the Bible in a more acceptable manner.
