Divinity School of Chung Chi College Chung Chi College

From 1957 religious education and theological training have been part of the academic programme of Chung Chi College. Since the establishment of The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1963, training in religious studies has received government funds for teachers’ salaries, while training of Christian ministers was, from 1963 to 1968, on an affiliated basis through the Chung Chi Theological Seminary. In 1968, the Seminary as such had ceased to exist and its function was transferred to the Theology Division in the Department of Philosophy and Religion. To strengthen the unique identity of the only theological education institution established in a Chinese public university at present and to enhance the collaboration with other seminaries over the world, the Theology Division has been renamed as the Divinity School of Chung Chi College with effect from August 1, 2004.
