Students enrolled part time at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary are often working full time, raising families, and serving churches. Some are in non-church-related work intending to pursue a church vocation, and others are serving congregations as pastors and educators and have not earned a seminary degree. Still others are active church members interested in serious theological study that do not intend to pursue ministry. Not all students intend to pursue a degree program. Taking classes for personal enrichment is also a wonderful option!

Part-time classes in the day and evening provide the space, time, and flexibility for students to continue managing life’s responsibilities while also earning their seminary degree—one piece at a time.

Incoming students must complete the standard admissions process. Classes start in the fall and spring semesters, plus summer and January terms. Financial aid (need- and merit-based) is available for degree-seeking students who take six credits per semester. The master’s degrees can be obtained through the evening program.
