Learning in Community

Time and time again students tell us that they choose to attend Pittsburgh Seminary because of the sense of community. Whether it’s in the conversations that continue outside the classroom, during dinner at a faculty member’s home, while worshiping in chapel, or in library group study sessions, PTS offers students on campus the opportunity learn and live in community.

Because our degree and certificate programs are offered in a hybrid format, classes can be taken in-person, hybrid, or online. The schedule is planned years in advance, so students can elect which delivery format best fits their needs. Students who prefer in-person learning and have the schedule flexibility can choose to do so. Learn more about the Seminary's hybrid program.
