Our Academics

We have six academic programs at the University but our only major emphasis is theology.  All six of our programs are accredited by the Higher Education Authority of Zambia.  Our motto is to "train Africa's next generation of spiritual leaders."  If you are interested in learning God's Word to better prepare to serve the Lord, then AIU may be the place for you.
