Whether pursuing ministry, academia, or a professional career, here you will find an extraordinary group of people compelled to deepen their knowledge of God, for a variety of fascinating reasons. At DSPT, lay women and men study for the MA Theology alongside Dominican Friars, Capuchins, Benedictines, Jesuits, as well as seminarians from the Eastern Orthodox Church and Assyrian Church of the East. Students also benefit from the wide range of theological faculties and resources available throughout the Graduate Theological Union, which span the full range of Christian denominations, as well as Jewish, Islamic, Orthodox, and Buddhist traditions.
Our theology programs aim to educate leaders who, by drawing upon tradition in light of contemporary culture, can identify and address the present needs of the Church. Rooted in our integrated approach, they begin with an introduction to philosophical issues and methods, in order to equip students with a knowledge of their discipline’s history and to render them conversant with a wide audience.
Students and faculty explore a wide variety of topics and seminars, including:
GTU Common MA Theology - in this program the student may specify DSPT as the school of affiliation. The program is interdisciplinary in nature taking advantage of the broader resources of the GTU.
