We at St. James appreciate the fact that many advanced students are interested in a broad scope of subject matter, while others prefer a concentration in theological exploration. This doctoral program delves into both disciplines and provides a very well-rounded education in which educators and clergy can be very confident.
Earning an M.A. in Theology with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary qualifies the graduate for consideration as a deacon. After serving as a deacon for six months (sometimes less), the candidate becomes eligible for consideration to the priesthood. See our student feedback.
