Introduction of department

  • Department of Counseling Psychology

    As the society rapidly changes while entering the 21st Century, the life of many individuals and families are weakening, and this is leading to social chaos. Hence, Korea Baptist Theological University/Seminary has established the Graduate School of Counseling (Dept. of Counseling Psychology) to contribute to building a bright and healthy church and future society by restoring individuals and families breaking down.
    If students complete the Counseling Psychology course, they receive the “Master of Culture (counseling and clinical psychology)” degree. And they can acquire a counseling specialist license acknowledged by our graduate school and a specialist license from various organizations including the Korean Association of Christian Counseling & Psychotherapy. Through this, graduates can work as counseling specialists and ministers in churches, counseling centers, hospitals, and schools.
    The Department of Counseling Psychology at the Graduate School of Counseling, which is a special graduate school with evening classes, can train competent counseling specialists needed in this day and age by providing education centered around systematic, specialized, and practical research.

  • Department of Social Welfare

    The department was established in 2001 to realize an advanced social welfare by fostering competent specialists in the area of Christian social welfare based on the Baptist and Christian spirit. Since the department has evening classes for highly advanced human resources with practical experience, a student can acquire a Master’s degree while contributing as a member of society. The expansion of a new paradigm centered around in-depth research classes and discussions guides the student to lead the Christian social welfare scene and demonstrate a more advanced expertise and leadership in various areas of social welfare. Furthermore, the department is directly operating Songkang Social Welfare Center to apply the theories and problem-solving methods of social welfare to the social welfare scene. Depending on the area of interest, the graduate of the school can play a central role in social welfare in the local community, church, and the country by becoming a key expert attempting an integrated approach in NGOs, Christian organizations, research centers, and government organizations pursuing missionary work.
