In the classroom, our faculty and students cultivate a sacred space. Our rigorous intellectual formation flows from a place of faith and is sharpened through its pastoral application. Students preparing for doctoral studies, campus ministry, parish life, and more bring their diverse experiences, rich faith life, and theological questions into the classroom. Guided by our faculty, students engage one another in dynamic dialogue, growing as individual scholars and ministers and as a community committed to the life of the church.

Courses foster growth at every step in one's education. From intimate, in-depth seminars to broad foundational courses, students can deepen their expertise, encounter new topics and approaches, and connect ideas across disciplines. STM courses challenge our students to consider their own theological voice and how that voice might contribute to the intellectual and pastoral conversations in the church and society.. Whether engaging ancient scripture, medieval texts, or pastoral approaches to trauma, students must ask why their studies matter and how they might use them going forward.
