Masters of Theology in Community Care and Development

Welcome to the Master Programs of Theology in Community Care and Development. We believe that theology is more than an academic program; it is a way to serve the church and society at large. Today, more than ever before, pastoral ministry, public service, administration and leadership require experts equipped with enough competence and intelligence, to be able to steer a holistic and sustainable development for our institutions and communities. We hope that The Master of Theology in Community Care and Development will respond to this need. Individuals who are eager for knowledge and good practices will find in these programs an inspiration and a true support in their studies, as well as in their personal and professional growth. This program address crucial concerns whole national, regional and international scope is indubitable. 
The Master Program of Theology in Community Care and Development will offer an opportunity to address the concerns of individuals and communities wounded by repetitive experiences of traumatizing situations: wars and massacres on a large scale leaving behind orphans, refugees, raped women and abused children, prisoners, widows and casualties; the 1994 genocide against Tutsi in Rwanda being a horrible illustration of this state of affairs. Moreover, the realities of structural injustices, ageism and disabilities call for a deeper analysis. This program will also tackle ecological issues as a contribution to the long-term struggle to mitigate global warming and climate change for a sustainable development.
The program complies with the requirements of the Rwandan Higher Education Council and is fully accredited by the Ministry of Education. Program counts 180 credits to be completed in two years divided into four semesters. For further information, you should open this link

We warmly welcome you at the Protestant Institute of Arts and Social Sciences.
