Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago

LSTC >> Academics


LSTC forms visionary leaders who are prepared practically, spiritually and academically by faculty members who have world-wide reputations for their excellence in teaching and scholarship.

LSTC’s M.Div. curriculum ensure that students receive a solid foundation in biblical studies, Lutheran theology, systematic theology,  preaching, and pastoral care, as well as core interdisciplinary courses and field work.

Students in the M.A. and M.A.T.S. programs prepare students for lay professional ministry or further study with a foundation of courses in Old and New Testament, church history, systematic theology and ministry. Each student must complete a summative evaluation that integrates the theory and practice of theology and ministry.

Advanced Studies students do intensive study in a focused area. Master of theology and Ph.D.  students choose from four areas of concentration: biblical studies, historical studies, theological studies (including emphases on Christian ethics and religion and science), or world Christianity and mission.  Doctor of Ministry students may enroll in the ACTS D.Min. in Preaching Program or the Ecumenical D.Min. (with concentrations in cross-cultural studies, liturgy, spirituality,  and educating for witness).
