The following three years are done simultaneously at both institutions with combined field education and clinical pastoral education components. The combined Divinity and Social Work program of Chicago Theological Seminary is ideal if you aspire to work at the intersection of ministry and social work, and require credentials in both areas. Application to each program is made separately to the respective institution.
At the conclusion of the CTS MDiv program, a student will be able:
- to engage in critical thinking based in mastery of foundational theological disciplines and methods of interpretation while demonstrating an ability to apply such knowledge critically to new challenges in ways that foster the increase of justice and mercy.
- to make compassionate connection with others, especially those who inhabit different cultural contexts and those who are suffering in a world stratified by social and economic class.
- to embody ethical-spiritual integrity in self while promoting it in others, as one develops an authentic embodiment of faith in life through spiritual practices, liturgies, beliefs and wisdom.
- to undertake concrete strategic action that is spiritually grounded and value-rich to promote the increase of justice and mercy.
