Scope and content

Malua Theological College is a training institute for the ministry of the Congregational Christian Church in Samoa (CCCS). It was established in 1844 in a district of Saleimoa west of Apia on the Island of Upolu.
The aim of the College is to provide quality theological education, and to equip student with knowledge and skills necessary for an effective ministry in the Church. In 1997 Malua Theological College introduced a four year course leading to a Bachelor of Theology or Bachelor of Divinity degree. Students are encouraged to appreciate and write about their beliefs as well as Samoan culture and values in relation to the CCCS Theology and faith.

Some students undertake further study, either Masters or PhDs, at universities overseas. The theses are designed as independent research work where students show their originality, creativity and contribution to theological learning. Many of the students use original source materials for their theses, including interviews and unpublished papers.
The Masters theses and Doctor of Philosophy theses have been microfilmed in separate series in date order.

A selection of Masters and PhD theses, held in the Malua Theological College, by ex-Malua Theological College students, undertaken in various universities throughout the world. Many of the student theses cover both Christian and Samoan values and traditions.
