Students studying in New College library

From its creation in 1982 by Professor Andrew F. Walls until the present day, the Centre has had a globally recognised reputation in the graduate study of World Christianity. Alumni from the Centre include some of the most recognised names in the field, such as Siga Arles, Kwame Bediako, Jonathan Bonk, Jehu Hanciles, Jooseop Keum, Esther Mombo, Cyril Okorocha, Diane Stinton, and Timothy Tennent.

The Centre continues to welcome a new cohort of graduate students at masters and doctoral levels each year, interested in various aspects of Christianity as a world religion. We provide training in historical, theological, and social scientific perspectives, with a primary interest in Christian life and thought in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Oceania, or diasporic expressions in Western contexts. 

Students are also exposed to some of the newest scholarship, with regular weekly research seminars during the two academic terms, offered by world-leading academics in World Christianity.   

Potential students can apply for admissions into the Centre’s one year taught MTh/MSc or supervised research masters or PhD, with various scholarship options.
