GITS is commited to producing competent servants of God, both in areas of personal lives, and also academically. To achieve that goal, GITS prepares various curriculums to meet the different needs of each student. Our complete array of programs allow you to choose the one that best fits your needs and resources.
These GITS degrees are patterned after the American system (Bachelor, Master, Doctor), but with different names. These degrees are not accredited.

|Certificate of Theology (36 credits) This one year program is for Christian lay activists who
wants to have better knowledge of Scripture for personal use.

degree is bestowed upon students who desire more training than can be given in a Certificate or Associate

|Scholar of Biblical Theology (Sc.B.T. 136 credits) The Sc.B.T. is similar to the Scholar of Biblical Study in its emphasis on the Bible, mission, and pastoring.

| Maestro of Divinity (Ma.Div. 96 credits*)
A classic three years degree for those who wants comprehensive training, the Ma.Div. is the main program

skillful in Biblical languages as well as trained in full-fledged thesis writing projects.
|Didaskalos of Theology (Dd.Th. 128 credits*)

theological study. The candidate is expected to be very competent at biblical expositions at the level of precise
use of the original languages of Greek and Hebrew. This program also asks the candidate to produce a major written
work of scholarly quality, which deeply discusses a topic, and which has to be defended before a panel.
