An integral part of EST, the Ecumenical Institute of Post-Graduation (IEPG) created the master of theology program in 1981 and the doctor of theology program in 1990.
With a faculty of 17, as of 2005 the IEPG had granted 110 master's degrees and 47 doctoral degrees.
The IEPG recently added an area of concentration, Education and Religion, which has attracted many students, and a new program, Mestrado Profissional, somewhat like the doctor of ministry, in the areas of liturgy and community education, which already has 40 students.
