Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) September 09, 2014
Anyone with an undergraduate degree who is interested in exploring opportunities for creative ministries in a church, parachurch or professional setting, still has time to answer that call. November 7 is the last day to register for the Master of Divinity (MDiv) program at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary (PTS), without paying the $75 late fee.
PTS offers four different MDiv programs. The general MDiv program is comprised of 111 credit hours and full-time students can complete the program in three years. In addition, PTS offer joint degrees with three other Pittsburgh universities.
By partnering with the University of Pittsburgh, PTS offers a joint Master of Divinity/Master of Social Work (MDiv/MSW) program that enables a student to earn both the MDiv and the MSW in four years instead of five. During the first two years, the student concentrates on theological studies and then the last two years are spent predominantly at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Social Work.
PTS and the School of Law at Duquesne University join together to offer a joint degree in the Master of Divinity/ Juris Doctor (MDIV/JD). The separate completion of both degrees would normally take six years but this joint degree program enables a student to complete both degrees in five years.
PTS and the Heinz School of Public Policy and Management at Carnegie Mellon University offer a joint degree program that leads to a Mater of Divinity (MDiv) and a Master of Science in Public Policy and Management (MSPPM).
While all of these degrees offer different concentrations, they prepare students to serve the spiritual needs of people in inner city environments in Pittsburgh, in suburban surroundings in towns like Washington, Indiana, Altoona, Pa., as well as in small-towns and rural areas throughout the state of Pennsylvania.
PTS was founded in 1794 and is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.SA.). Located on a beautiful 13-acre campus in the East Liberty/Highland Park section of Pittsburgh, it has the largest theological library in the three-state region with more than 300,000 volumes for research and exploration. Students come from across the United States and represent more than 20 denominations.
