LSTC >> Admissions

Degree Options

Those considering ordained ministry and chaplaincy most often choose the Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree. Those who hope to earn their Ph.D. most often begin with the Master of Arts in Theological Studies (M.A.T.S.) or M.Div. degree. Those who are preparing for a variety of ministries choose the Master of Arts in Ministry (M.A.M.) degree. Perhaps you want to take just one course, registering as a Special Student (non-degree options) or need to take several courses to meet ELCA Candidacy requirements (non-degree options).

In the Fall of 2014, LSTC will implement our new curriculum. Please see our 2014-2016 Catalog [PDF] for the most up-to-date information concerning our new degree outlines and requirements.
