A revised curriculum was 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.

Until further notice, in cases of scheduling difficulties, up to two 500-level courses may be taken if all 100-300 level and at least two 400-level courses have been completed.*
