Chinese Language Courses
What is Chinese Semlink?
Chinese Semlink is a diploma program designed to train men and women for ministry in Mandarin-speaking contexts in the United States and around the world through an e-learning environment. Although not offered for degree credit, the diploma curriculum is provided at a graduate level and involves Master of Arts core courses. The application process for Chinese Semlink diploma students is completely separate from the application process for Gordon-Conwell degree programs.
The Diploma Program
The Chinese Semlink Diploma Program requires students to complete eight courses: six required courses, and two electives (please refer to Chinese language website and to the course offerings below). A diploma certificate will be issued by Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary upon successful completion of the program.
The Chinese Semlink program is academically supervised by a team of Chinese faculty. The team includes the following:
- Dr. Kevin Xiyi Yao (Th.D., Boston University)
- Dr. Rev. Abraham Hiutung Chan (Ph.D., Boston College)
- Dr. Rev. Tsu-kung Chuang (Ph.D., Trinity Evangelical Divinity School)
- Dr. Rev. Peter Jung-chu Wu (Ph.D., Westminster Theological Seminary)
Use of Diploma Program Courses for Gordon-Conwell Degree Programs
Diploma program courses can be applied to a degree program at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary through a vetting process by meeting the standards and formally applying to a degree program. Ten diploma program courses may be applied to the M.Div. degree, and up to seven may be applied to an M.A. program. For questions related to transferring diploma courses into a degree program, please contact Dr. Kevin Xiyi Yao.
