Our Mission

To form servant scholars and leaders through exceptional graduate programs for Christ and His Kingdom.

Our Vision

God transforming the world through scholars and practitioners rooted in Christ and equipped for global leadership.

Built on a Historic Foundation

Wheaton College Graduate School is a part of Wheaton College, a Christian, interdenominational, four-year, liberal arts school founded in 1860. The Graduate School was founded in 1937 to provide further theological training and ministry skills needed to advance the cause of Christ and His kingdom. Both the College and Graduate School are on the same eighty-acre campus in Wheaton, IL, a forty-five-minute train ride straight west of downtown Chicago.

Drawing on the values of our Christian liberal arts heritage, we offer 18 degree programs in the areas of psychology, education, biblical and theological studies, and ministry and leadership, with many courses available in flexible formats that fit the needs of today's adult students. Our goal is to equip emerging leaders through a singular educational experience to go into the world and become effective influencers wherever God may call them.

Scholarship Committed to Servanthood

"Scholarship Committed to Servanthood" isn't just our motto. It's an idea that informs every part of the Wheaton College Graduate School experience.


Wheaton offers students a rare combination of academic excellence and practical training in the evangelical Christian tradition. You will benefit from studying with committed, internationally respected, and well-published faculty who create an educational environment that prepares individuals to lead, serve, counsel, direct, and teach throughout the world.


Beyond simply learning for learning's sake, the Graduate School is committed to the direct application of our scholarly work to the service of the church and the world. Our alumni make a powerful impact around the world as servant leaders shaping the work of the kingdom. Learn more about how our alumni are putting their education into action.

Wheaton is located just 25 miles west of Chicago, and it's easy to catch a train into the city and enjoy the limitless educational, cultural, and recreational opportunities.
