Taiwan Theological College and Seminary was founded in 1872 and in 2009 the Post-graduate Department was established to provide programs for the degrees of Master of Theology and Doctor of Philosophy. The establishment of the Post-graduate Department is to prepare the best qualified persons for theological research and education for the area, and designed to connect our faculty members with other theological academicians so that our students are able to engage in advanced academic research in Asia.
