Curriculum

A revised curriculum is implemented beginning in fall 2014. The revision is based on three criteria: theological integrity, pedagogy of formation, and relevance to the needs of the church. It provides clearer pedagogical objectives and greater focus on formation and pastoral identity.

It is strongly recommended that students progress through the levels sequentially when possible.
