In March 1989, World Mission Theological Seminary started with thirty-two students and Rev. Dong Sun Lim was appointed as the first President. World Mission Theological Seminary was authorized to issue the Master of Divinity and Master of Arts degrees in 1991, and the Bachelor of Arts degree in 1992 by the California Department of Education. In 1993, the name of the institution was changed from World Mission Theological Seminary to World Mission University to reflect the school’s broader offering of programs. In August 2003, the institution moved to a new location in Koreatown, a center of downtown Los Angeles.
WMU offers bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees in such subjects as biblical studies, church music, and Christian counseling. Distance Education programs are offered at all degree levels.
