Reimagining Theological Education
The curriculum of the academic track is essentially the Faith and Justice Fellowship with additional academic content and assignments (written reflections, oral presentations, academic papers, etc.). We have established strategic partnerships with a number of academic institutions across the United States to offer our students diverse pathways to degree programs. Learn more about the fellowship curriculum and the academic track for those discerning a call to seminary education here. And feel free to reach out to us with any questions or if you just want to talk about your sense of calling.
It is possible to do the work of the fellowship for advanced standing with credit at one of our partner seminaries:
- Austin Theological Seminary
- Fuller Theological Seminary
- Pittsburgh Theological Seminary
- Western Theological Seminary
Upon satisfactory review of student portfolios by the partner seminaries, students will receive advanced standing with credit toward an M.Div. or M.A. program.
Certificate: Students who wish to take the courses as a standalone program will receive a Certificate in Public Theology upon completion of the Faith and Justice Fellowship – Academic Track. The certificate program is especially well-suited for non-ordained church leadership positions.
Our students have gone on to study at each of our partner seminaries above as well as Luther Theological Seminary, Princeton Theological Seminary, Union Seminary (NYC), and Wesley Theological Seminary.
Tuition: The Academic Cohort of the Faith and Justice Fellowship is eight academic units. Tuition for the year is $3,600 ($400/credit). The program involves academic work under faculty supervision leading to advanced standing at one of our partner seminaries. Additional elective courses may be available over the course of the year.
Other Costs: Students should also plan on book purchases ($200 over the course of the year). Optional retreats and other regional gatherings will have separate registration fees.
Payment Schedule: Participants make quarterly payments of their remaining tuition balance after the application fee and confirmation deposit.
Scholarships are available; we encourage early application for full consideration.
