An interview with Dr. Straub concerning the postgraduate program
The purpose of the Master of Theology program is to initiate students into the scholarly disciplines of research and writing.
Applicants must have a recognized M.Div. degree or its equivalent with a minimum GPA of 3.0 (B). A limited number of students with an average grade lower than B may be admitted on a probationary basis, if otherwise acceptable.
Applicants must demonstrate a working knowledge of Greek and Hebrew. Typically, the applicant’s transcripts should reflect 18 semester hours of Greek and 12 semester hours of Hebrew prior to application for the Th.M. program.
Graduates of M.Div. programs other than Central Seminary’s may be required to take either written or oral entrance examinations at the seminary’s discretion. Other academic, psychological, or spiritual examinations may be required at the discretion of the seminary.
Normally, students will submit a thesis or extended research paper that they have written previously. Otherwise, the faculty may administer an examination in connection with the application.
