Rikkyo University Graduate School of Christian Studies explores the possibilities of Christianity in Japan and Northeast Asia in the 21st century.
On the occasion of its 135th anniversary , Rikkyo University, founded by the missionary Bishop Channing Moore Williams of the American Episcopal Church, expanded its existing Graduate School of Arts in Theology to include a new Graduate School of Christian Studies. Although Christianity at Rikkyo University is rooted in the tradition of the Anglican Church, the Graduate School is grounded in a spirit of ecumenism. Studies can approach the 2000 years of Christian history from various perspectives.
With Christianity as its main focus, the Graduate School of Christian Studies nurtures understanding of mankind and the world, history and society, and art and culture.
