Despite the Church’s
involvement in education in Malawi for so many years there has
been an acute shortage of properly trained and qualified Bible
Knowledge and Religious and Moral Education teachers at all academic
levels i.e. at primary, secondary and tertiary levels.
Religious institutions that
used to compensate for this shortfall do not have adequate personnel
to carry on. To a larger extent this has been so because most
secondary school teachers trained in Malawi attended secular universities
who have no preparation in Biblical and Religious Studies course.
It is with this background
that the catholic University of Malawi wishes to produce adequate
and professionally qualified Bible Knowledge and Religious Moral
Education teachers for Secondary Schools and Colleges.
The following are some
of the many careers opportunities the society holds for the graduates
