Education standards and professors

This program was developed according to western standards for postgraduate education. You have a unique opportunity to be taught by some of the best western and Ukrainian professors.

"As an Adjunct Professor at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary and a Fellow in the National Center for Crisis Management, I support the vision and program that REALIS is developing in partnership with National Pedagogical University in Ukraine."

Dr. Naomi Paget

“Our world is in desperate shape, groaning for relief once and for all. To be a place where life is shared honestly, compassionately, and without fear, free from bullying and inhumanity.

The world we long for is what the Bible calls mishpat ("justice"). In fact, that is its storyline, a story tracing the heart of God which exists in advance of human action. More than ever, it is crucial that agents for good in our world come to understand this story in all of its dimensions so that they can join it.

REALIS and its programs are strategically positioned to help with this. To educate and lead difference makers into the eternal story of justice. The historic passion and mission of REALIS remain committed to this end. Are you ready for the challenge? It is not for the faint of heart. But the stakes are high. And the ending is glorious.
