Admission Requirements

A minimum of 30 semester hours of Bible and theology at the undergraduate level, or their equivalent, is required before admission will be granted to the M.A. in Practical Theology program. A grade point average of 3.0 or higher is expected in one’s undergraduate work. Students are permitted to transfer a maximum of 12 acceptable graduate credits into this program.


Students pursuing pastoral ministry should have had at least two semesters of homiletics and an apprenticeship as a part of their undergraduate experience. This requirement may be waived, at the discretion of the seminary faculty, for those who have at least one year of full-time pastoral experience.
