University of Arusha
Currently, TAC has been carrying a multi-sectoral programme largely categorised as educational, religious, recreational activities, income generation projects and non-Income generation projects.

The overall aim of this sector is to prepare students for life in the broad sense of completeness as human beings, rather than in the narrower sense of completeness in a particular discipline. This involves harmonious development of the physical, the social, the mental, and the spiritual powers for the joy of service in this world and in the world to come. To achieve this objective, the institute has programme portfolio that offers four-degree courses, three diploma courses and three certificate courses. Brief profiles of the departmentsí» goals are present below.

Department of Theology; aimed at equipping students with theological and religious knowledge and skills that enable them to lead Christian ministries in the fulfilment of Christí»s commission in the context of the SDA church. Major emphasis of the department is placed on training students to serve as pastors and teachers in the Christian church and community in the major elements of church life which are Worship, Nurturing, Fellowship and Mission.

Department of Secretarial Science; is based on the philosophy of true Christian education, which balances development of the physical, the mental, the social and the spiritual powers. The department therefore prepares and produces professional secretaries who can integrate spiritual values with secretarial principles consistently.

Department of Business Administration; believes that God has entrusted us with gifts such as talents, wealth, powers, and ability to think and to make reasonable decisions, which should be managed and used for His glory. The department aims to prepare competent and committed business people to contribute to the economic and social development of the society.

Department of Education; is devoted to prepare committed teachers who will continuously search for truth, guide and teach students in harmony with Godí»s revelations to us through nature, human relations, experiences, talents, Scripture and plan of salvation. The department believes that true education tunes our thoughts, attitude, skills, knowledge, and culture to the understanding of God.

Besides the achievements of various departments the following constraints have been noted since the college was initiated. These include: -

Inadequate teaching-learning facilities
Inadequate finance
Inadequate basic necessities (water, housing etc)
As a result the various departments have realised a low student enrolment trend as is shown in figure 1.
