The university has a team of highly qualified full-time lecturers with at least a master’s or doctoral degree from recognised and well known international institutions. Justo Mwale University also uses guest and aide lecturers from both local and outside who are specialists in their fields of teaching.
The university offers the following programmes:
Short course in children's ministry
This course is designed for Sunday school teachers and people that are involved in children’s ministry. The course is offered on a regular basis as part of the Christian mission programme and not as a stand alone course.
Short course in basic community mobilisation and development
This course is tailored for people in leadership positions who need the skill to start development in their communities, and manage developmental projects.
Certificate in Christian stewardship and sustainability
The course is designed for practicing evangelists and ministers in poor congregations who cannot fully support their minister. The course provides life skills and teaches ministers how to earn an extra income so that they are less dependent on the congregations they are serving. The university gives priority to evangelists and ministers in rural or peri-urban areas.
Certificate in Christian mission
Designed for prospective evangelists and church planters with at least a grade nine certificate.
Certificate in Women's ministry
Designed for wives of ministers and prospective ministers who want to improve their educational background in order to assist their spouses in congregational ministry.
Master of theology: ‘Biblical theology and hermeneutics’
Targeted for ministers or pastors and graduated theological students who intend to improve their understanding and skills in Biblical interpretation for their ministry, and for possible future doctoral studies in Old or New Testament.
Bachelor of theology
The course equips pastors or ministers of churches for a holistic ministry within the context of Zambia and neighbouring countries. Emphasis is on academic brilliance, spiritual formation and vocational vision.
With more than 16,000 volumes, the university college has one of the best equipped theological libraries in the country. Justo Mwale University aims to provide resources of quality and sufficient quantity that will support the academic programs offered by the college.
