This program is aimed at preparing students at graduate levels to acquire professional competencies in teaching diverse subjects in which they have received prior preparation and to be able to give leadership and administer education programs in learning institutions in diverse contexts. A unique feature of the program is the attempt to integrate faith, life and Christian values in the process, with a view to enabling holistic handling of the different subject matters

1. Master of Education (Curriculum and Instruction)
The specialization primarily provides for the on-going professional development needs of practicing teachers, and other educational professionals within the context of their disciplines-specific content knowledge. The program seeks to enhance the teaching competencies of such professionals by deepening their understanding of, and improving their skills in instructional design and teaching, curriculum design, and assessment within a framework. In addition, the program provides a solid theoretical framework for candidates in non-teaching fields who may want to teach, administer educational programs or want to be curriculum workers. 

2. Master of Education (Church Education)
The specialization is designed for equipping potential and functional leaders with knowledge, skills and character qualities to enable those trained to go on to serve in church education ministries, or teach in theological institutions, or teach in public schools.

3. Master of Education (Educational Leadership and Administration)
The specialization builds up the competencies of individuals who desire to lead and administer education programs in diverse institutional contexts. It is committed to providing quality education and instruction to leaders in the field of education that will fully equip them to face emerging leadership and administrative challenges. Students are empowered to use strategies that will make them become advocates of change and for training other educators in a mentoring relationship.

4. Master of Education (Child Development and Family Studies)
The specialization is designed to prepare students to develop competencies that would enable them to work as directors/pastors of Christian education programs in the church, children ministry workers, directors of children’s home, caregivers etc. The program aims to prepare men and women to effectively and holistically minister to children in diverse contexts. Students are challeged to reflect upon child development within the African setting, and the influences of that development from a biblical/theological perspective. Emphasis is also placed on the importance of understanding the broad sociocultural context that influences child development within the family and community both positively and negatively, and how Christians can positively contribute to healthy children, healing children at risk, and building strong families and communities within the church and through outreach into communities.
