Graduate Program Overview
seminary education is a unique experience.
As a graduate school, there is the same dedication to learning and
academic rigor as other institutions offering advanced degrees. As a seminary,
students have the opportunity to study topics not offered elsewhere, such as
liturgy and moral theology. The seminary academic experience is
supplemented with structured pastoral assignments to better prepare graduates
to minister to others. This practical, in-field education is also
integrated with personal and spiritual formation, ensuring graduates receive a comprehensive
experience of learning and growth.
