Take a Course

I Want to Take a Course at LTSP!

Adults of all educational and religious backgrounds are welcome to take courses at the seminary for personal and professional enrichment or to find out if seminary is right for you through LTSP’s Adult Learning offerings, including the spring 2015 Seminars on Educational Ministry in Congregations.

I Do Not Have a Bachelor’s Degree…

You can still select from many possible courses at LTSP that do not produce academic credits. What are your interests and vocational goals?

  • Courses offered on Saturday mornings through the Urban Theological Institute (Black Church) can lead to certificates in Church Leadership or in Christian Ministry. For more information, contact the Rev. Dr. Quintin Robertson, Director, at qrobertson@ltsp.edu or call 215.248.7324.
  • Occasional non-credit courses and one-day seminars are offered through our Adult Learning offerings. For more information, contact Kathie Afflerbach, Coordinator, at kafflerbach@ltsp.edu or call 215.248.6324.
  • Regular Master of Divinity (MDiv)-level course offerings may be taken on an audit or continuing education basis. Take a look at our course schedule and look for courses at the 400 level and below. For registration information, click here.

I Have a Bachelor’s Degree…

  • All of the above options are available to you. In addition, you may take up to six of our MDiv-level courses (400 level and below) for academic credit. This is a good way to “get your feet wet” if you are contemplating getting a certificate or degree sometime in the future. Take a look through our course schedules.
