Divinity School of Chung Chi College: Q & A

previouspausenext

What programmes of study does the school offer?

The Divinity School of Chung Chi College is the only divinity school in a public university in the Chinese world. It offers six Chinese University degree programmes, ranging from BA (majoring in theology), Master of Divinity to PhD programmes. It also runs Bachelor of Divinity, Master of Theology and Doctor of Theology programmes offered by the South East Asia Graduate School of Theology. Apart from the BA (majoring in theology) at CUHK which is supported by the University Grants Committee, the other programmes and the school’s regular expenses are financed independently by the school.

Chung Chi College has a chapel already. Why does it need a new one?

They complement each other. The new chapel accommodates 350 people and is more appropriate for small-scale services and meditation activities. The old chapel has a capacity of 1,200, which makes it a better venue for College general education and lectures. With the increase in student numbers due to the implementation of the four-year curriculum, the College Chapel will be occupied more frequently. The new chapel ensures theology students has their own place for spiritual cultivation.

Who lives in the Theology Building?

The Theology Building came about in the late 1960s. It has men and women’s hostels, married quarters for theology students, classrooms, and offices. All single, full-time theology students have to live in the building. A few undergraduates in Chung Chi College also reside there. Now that the President Chi-tung Yung Memorial Building is completed, the offices will be relocated to the new building.
