About the Graduate School

Wheaton College is a Christian, interdenominational, four-year, liberal arts school. The Graduate School was founded 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.
