Academics & Programs 

Born out of the Oxford Movement, Nashotah House prides itself on forming ministers to serve wherever God calls them. From parish priests, chaplains, and bishops to teachers, missionaries, and church planters, our alumni and the people they serve benefit from the formation of the whole person through daily prayer and a life shared with others who are seeking to answer God’s call on their lives. 

Regardless of whether residential seminary education is possible at this point in your life, you will study with a world-class faculty in a learning community centered around REAL PRESENCE AND REAL PREPARATION.

Academic Programs

Master of Theological Studies (MTS)
Offered in residential and hybrid-distance formats

An academic degree offering a number of areas of concentration and the opportunity to write a thesis in the area of your choosing.

Master of Sacred Theology (STM)
Offered in hybrid-distance format in Summer and Winter terms

An advanced degree requiring a first theological master’s degree for admission, the STM invites you to dig deeper into an aspect of theological study, while serving as a discernment tool and stepping stone to advanced study at the doctoral (PhD/ThD) level.

Doctor of Ministry (DMin)

Offered in hybrid-distance format in Summer and Winter terms.

The primary purpose of the Doctor of Ministry in Ecclesial Leadership program is to enhance the study and practice of ministry. As a professional degree, the DMin deepens the understanding of ministry through biblical, historical and theological reflection in dialogue with the concrete realities of ministry. Whereas a PhD emphasizes theory in dialogue with theory to advance theories, the DMin emphasizes theory in dialogue with practice in order to advance more faithful ministry practice of the Church. The program is not designed to prepare students for a college or university teaching ministry, rather to form students to serve as reflective practitioners, specialists whose ministries are informed by advanced studies in the subject areas of classical theological education.
