It is crucial to continue learning about God, his Word, and his people. One excellent way to cultivate a lifestyle of learning is through higher education courses. This is why we’ve partnered with Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, one of the nation’s top evangelical seminaries. However, this opportunity is not just for those in full-time ministry or pursuing a seminary degree. If you’re discerning how you might best contribute to the kingdom, or if you’re just excited to learn more about our great God, these courses might be an amazing opportunity for you!
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
Pittsburgh Extension Site
offers two ideal paths for nontraditional learners who are interested in
pursuing a program marked by breadth, depth and flexibility. For mature
learners who are unable to relocate to Trinity's Deerfield
campus for theological education, Trinity offers the Master of Arts in Theological Studies and the Certificate in Christian Studies. Both the 42
semester hour MA in Theological Studies and the 24 semester hour Certificate
enable you to deepen your biblical and theological knowledge base, while
broadening your ministry scope through relevant course work in any or all of
our academic departments at Trinity. Your goals, effectiveness in ministry and
impact in the secular workplace will be significantly enhanced by the training
you receive in these quality programs.
A most attractive feature of both the
Certificate and the MA/TS program is their flexibility. These programs allow
you to either devote your large number of electives to concentrated study in
one or two areas of interest, or to develop a comprehensive program from
Trinity's broad selection of course offerings, which have been drawn from
several masters level programs, including the MDiv. You will have the
opportunity to pursue study of both theoretical and practical concerns,
integrating the two for greater Christian growth and ministry effectiveness.
Another appealing feature for many
nontraditional learners is that either program can be pursued in a
non-traditional educational format. The Certificate of Christian Studies
and up to 5 courses of the MA in Theological Studies can be done
through Distance Education (DE) courses online. Further, if you are within
driving distance to one of our Extension sites, you can complete the
entire MA Theological Studies degree at the extension site.
