This program is recognized by CHED.

The PhD in Contextual Theology is a degree that interfaces Biblical Studies and Theology and the understanding of one’s socio-cultural context with the aid of the Social Sciences. In this interface, the importance of transformational, pastoral, educational, and missional tasks are emphasized. This degree will enable graduates to exercise theological and educational leadership in churches, NGOs, educational institutions, research centers and to engage their economic, political, and social worlds.
