Educating imaginative, resilient leaders for God's changing world.


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


Columbia Theological Seminary (CTS) is committed to offering the highest quality educational training for ministry in Christ's church and world. Such commitments however, require regular moments of focused evaluation of degree program offerings, so the best education can continue to be offered. To that end, the faculty of Columbia Theological Seminary has 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.

Through the advanced degree programs, CTS seeks to enhance the ministries of men and women who are currently engaged in ordained or other forms of leadership. The Master of Theology degree program, in particular, is designed for persons with a Master of Divinity or equivalent degree who seek advanced study or specialization. It is especially designed for persons who wish to pursue a further year of academic preparation for Christian ministry, are preparing to teach or seek a terminal degree.

Columbia Theological Seminary is committed to "educating imaginative, resilient leaders for God's changing world." As an educational institution of the Presbyterian Church (USA), Columbia is a community of theological inquiry and formation for ministry in the service of the Church of Jesus Christ. Columbia offers seven graduate degree programs and dozens of lifelong learning courses and events as a resource for church professionals and lay people. For more information, please visit
