    Suspension of Admission to the Master of Theology Program for One Year Review

    Columbia Theological Seminary (CTS), through the advanced degree programs, seeks to enhance the ministries of men and women who are currently engaged in ordained or other forms of leadership.  CTS is committed to offering the highest quality educational training for ministry in Christ's church and world.  Such commitments require regular moments of focused evaluation of degree program offerings.  To that end, the faculty of Columbia Theological Seminary voted to suspend admission to the Master of Theology (ThM) degree program to undergo a one year programmatic and curricular review.  No admission applications to the ThM program will be accepted until a full review has been completed.

    For questions, you may contact the Admissions Office at 404.687.4517.
