  1. Hello, everyone. I'm starting the MDiv degree at Harvard this fall, but I'm also interested being dual enrolled in the Kennedy school with an MPP. If anyone has any insight on how to pursue this or what opportunities it may bring, I would really appreciate it!
  2. Hello GradCafe-verse, I’m in the process of sending off applications to grad school for my MDiv. I wanted to begin correspondence here with other applicants for Fall 2020 or current MDiv students. ALL VOICES WELCOME! My intentions are not to wear a collar, in all reality, but to work in NGOs, nonprofits and public policy for social justice and global conflict transformation. Right now, I’m planning on applying to Emory/Candler, Yale, Duke, Boston University... as they all offer an MDiv with the particular focus I’m looking for. Right now, I’m not certain these are the only places to
  3. Hello all! I was wondering if any of you may be able to help me out with a grad school search. I am hoping to study Buddhist-Christian dialogue in an MDiv program in preparation for pursuing Buddhist chaplaincy and/or Protestant ministry. I have read quite a lot on this topic, especially from writers Thich Nhat Hanh and Paul Knitter. I find the conversation between these two traditions to be fascinating, and I am interested in finding ways to put it into practice. I am considering applying for MDiv programs at UChicago and Harvard, as I have heard they have the greatest assets for multi-faith
  4. I've been accepted into PTS and Duke Divinity. I'm pretty familiar with the theological framework of each institution, and what kind of quality of life I'd expect in each city. I've also received an 80% tuition scholarship and grant from PTS and 33-25% tuition grant from Duke. The standard need-based stuff from each school. My question here is: will either school do a better job preparing (perhaps qualifying) me for eventual PhD work in theology? I'm still figuring out what I'd like to do my PhD in but it would likely would be in theology (creation, anthropology, or eschatology) or early
  5. Hi all! I have been reading through the forum and have really appreciated the insight many of you have into the religious studies field and various programs. My post is a bit of a "what are my chances?" and "do you have experience with my situation?" hybrid. I am a current MA (Theological Studies) student at a local ATS-accredited seminary. I graduated with my BA in Psychology in 2011, and, after soul-searching and trying my hand in several psychology-related positions, I decided to return for a seminary degree in hopes of becoming a minister, author, and perhaps adjunct prof on the side.
  6. Hello Everyone! I'm looking to apply to some M.Div programs next Fall (2019) and need some advice regarding what schools would be a good fit and what my chances would be of getting into them. I've spoken with a couple of professors at a few different schools, but I'm hoping that this forum could help fill in the gaps. My criteria are the following: 1) Generous funding (*highest priority) 2) Solid academic reputation that would increase chances of getting into a funded Phd program in Theology/Historical Theology 3) Not hostile to conservatives (I'm a progressive evangel
  7. Hey all, Starting this thread to help each other and let one another know where we applied, got accepted, denied or wait-listed. Also feel free to provide any other information such as funding, choosing one school over another, reasons why rejecting etc. Here is my list of applications and updates so far: USA Yale Div - MARc Philosophical Theology/Philosophy of Religion (waiting) Duke Div - MTS (accepted w/ 25% funding) - any idea how to get more? Wake Forest Div - MDiv (rejected) - was surprised to find out I was rejected BU SoT - MTS (waiting)
  8. What GRE score is actually required to be in the middle of the pack for the top tier of master's level theology programs? Save the smarmy, lame platitudes about "the best score is the one that represents your best efforts." That's just something people say so that they don't hurt feelings of underachievers--we all know it, but no one says it. But I'm looking for info, not sensitivity. Also, save your unwarranted advice to the effect that "the GRE is unimportant for admissions." Be that as it may, it is still a factor and I'd like the data on it, since grad programs are far less than forth
  9. Hey all, I'm starting to draft my statement of purpose and was wondering if any of you had any advice about the general structure of how the statement should look. It'd be great to hear any other advice as to what you believe the the essential aspects of a successful statement are Applying to sociology PhD programs and a couple of MA programs in theology, but would be happy to hear advice from those outside of these disiciplines as well. Thanks in advance!
  10. Hi, everyone: Just wondering if there are any good resources online or elsewhere for someone to figure out what they're even qualified to do. I ask because I've reached burnout with adjuncting. I've got two terminal degrees with honors from good universities (not that that matters outside of academia) and 8 years experience in higher ed with a couple of years in government (doing human rights advocacy) and church. Because I haven't published a book yet and I don't have a PhD, I haven't had much luck finding a secure teaching job with a sustainable wage, and because I'm not ordained (yet--
  11. Hi everyone, I'm from China, have identified myself as a Confucian since 17 years old. I spent nearly six years in department of philosophy studying Chinese philosophy but roughly six months ago I realized that I want to do something practical to spread Confucius Teaching instead of doing academic work in a College. I think M.Div. programs offer the education I need. I hope to establish Confucian organizations ( monasteries, actually ) in future and spread Confucius Teaching to common people in China. The courses on arts of ministry are exactly what I want. Here are some details abou
  12. Thank you all for your insightful answers to so many posts on this forum! I'm applying for fall 2017, and I keep seeing conflicting answers to this question: is the MDiv or the MTS/MAR/MA better for those who plan to pursue a PhD? I've heard from MDivs that theirs is the better program since you have more time to get to know your professors in the third year. I'm attracted to the field ed component of these programs and would like to gain the pastoral experience even though I don't feel called to parish ministry right now. (Of course I know the MDiv is not exclusively for parish ministers
  13. Hello all! I am wondering if someone can help me out by giving me a better idea of my chances with a few programs. I am finding it difficult to find helpful information about grad programs. So if anyone has a better idea that would be helpful! I just graduated in May from St. Olaf College, a small liberal arts college in Minnesota. In college I studied Social Work and Religion. This year I am participating in a gap year program called Lutheran Volunteer Corps, where I live in community with other volunteers and work as a social worker at a homeless shelter. I graduated with a 3.72 GPA. I am ho
  14. Hello, I'm writing in hopes of getting some advice regarding MTS and Mdiv programs in the US. I finished my bachelors at Brown in an unrelated field (studio art) in May of 2015 but became interested in pursuing an MTS or Mdiv after taking some coursework in theology and medieval philosophy. I am particularly interested in what I have heard called 'philosophical theology', although this designation seems a little loose; I just use it here to refer to the work of people like Plantinga, McCord Adams, MacKinnon, Alston, and Wolterstorff who borrow heavily from philosophy and don't seem too ca
  15. Dear Friends, I know many of you are looking at graduate programs and all of you want to be fully-funded. My name is Aidan Smith and I am the new Director of Recruitment at Trinity School for Ministry. I wanted to inform you that every year TSM is able to award full-tuition scholarships to students who study full-time at our residential campus in Ambridge, Pennsylvania. In fact, last year 100% of our residential, full-time campus received this benefit. For the fall 2016 semester, there are still slots available. If you are interested in applying, it is not too late! TSM appli
  16. Hello, I am on track to graduate this semester from a Christian University with a degree in Christian Studies. I have decided to take the coming academic year off in order to make some money and figure out my medical situation(recently diagnosed with Bipolar 2 and unmediated at the moment). I am planning on applying to the MDiv programs at Princeton, Yale, and Duke (with Fuller as an insurance option) for the 2017 Fall semester. I was wondering how likely my chances of getting accepted into the programs would be considering my situation/credentials. Freshmen year: year long paid internshi

    Jobs for MDivs?

    Hi everyone: As of last month I'm graduated with my MDiv--however, my vocational plans (as they are wont to do) got switched around a bit. I went to div school thinking I wanted to do PhD work and then got bitten by the ministry bug. This final year--after much discernment--I decided that I felt called to the Episcopal Church (instead of the UMC in which I grew up) and am in the confirmation process. This means that I will probably need to get a Certificate in Anglican Studies to place me on the ordination track. I'm thus looking for a job that can pay rent and put food on the table unti
  18. If there are any of you old timers or people who are applying to PhDs or ThDs currently, I'm curious what your advice would be to someone currently going through a MDiv program about preparation for a doctorate. My research centers on conscientious objection, non-violence, and pacifism and their relation to religion in the 20th century. I'm also interested in sacrament and resistance during Vietnam War protests. With that being said: What GPA do I need to be in the running? 3.8+ seems pretty doable, but a 4.0 is probably not going to happen. There will be some A- or B+'s that creep into
  19. I have a UG in Psychology and I am about to do a Mdiv, which I really want to do in Ja. Would this greatly affect my chances of getting into a phd Psychology program abroad. Even if I have a few years counseling experience would still have to do a MA to get in? I would really appreciate any advice I can get right now. Thank you.
