Hekima University College

Hekima University College was started in 1984 as the Jesuit School of Theology to a handful of students, specifically to the members of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits).

The undergraduate theology programme of the College trains students from about fourteen local and international religious congregations. The graduate Peace Studies and International Relations programme draws students from all walks of life representing various nationalities.

Responding to the African continent’s dire need for peace and international co-operation, Hekima University College established its Institute of Peace Studies and International Relations in 2004. The institute began offering a Master’s degree in Peace Studies and International Relations and was accredited by the Commission for University Education in the Academic Year 2007/2008.

The undergraduate theology programme offers students formation and training in a contextualized theology and equips them to transform the contemporary context of church and society. Just as the theology programme seeks to form transformers of the world, so also the peace and studies international relations programme seeks to educate and form women and men who are equipped with appropriate skills and competence for conflict transformation and peace building.

Hekima University College publishes Hekima Review, a journal of Theology, Peace & International Relations.
The college also convenes a Theological Week and a Peace Forum each academic year. it also convenes a Forum for Exploring Faith in Public Life that explores issues of faith and belief and their implications for life in socio-economic and political contexts.
