Myanmar Institute of Theology, a leading seminary in Myanmar, has been offering quality theological education since its establishment in 1927. In response to the dire need of higher quality education in the country, MIT started a liberal arts program called Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies in 2000. The objective of MIT is to equip its students with higher education – theology as well as secular – so that they will be able to actively and effectively participate in the ministry and serve their society. Measures are being taken to ensure that this objective is achieved and maintained. At present, we are offering the following programs,

  • Diploma in Community Development Studies

  • Master of Arts in Community Development Studies
  • Master of Divinity
  • Master of Theology
  • Master of Arts in Christian Studies
