Diploma in Christian Studies – Worldview Studies in Korean (33 credits)
The Diploma in Christian Studies (WSK) is a program for Korean-speaking Christian leaders who want to become equipped with a Christian worldview.
This program seeks to equip Christian leaders with a Christian worldview, so that they may become Christ-like servants and sacrificial leaders who “demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God,” and who “take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ” (2 Cor.10:3-5, Mk.10:45). This program will be of interest to those who have a sabbatical year.
Courses and program requirements for the Worldview Studies in Korean program are available entirely in Korean, though students who wish may also access the wider range of English-delivery courses and resources available through ACTS.
