About

For those who are currently working in pastoral ministry or are discerning the call to such service, the program provides a course of studies that infuses the students' desire to serve with the spiritual tools necessary to grow deeper in their faith. 

This program consists of five separate, interrelated elements: coursework, field education, theological reflection, spiritual formation, and an Integration Seminar/Final Comprehensive Project. Taken together, these elements ensure that graduates from the program have both a theoretical and practical appreciation of what it means to live lives of committed service to Church and society.

Courses are offered on Seton Hall University's main campus in South Orange, New Jersey, as well as at off-campus locations and parishes in collaboration with ICSST's many certificate programs. 

All students must take STHO 6020 Research Seminar in the first semester of study
