perplexed101 Posted February 13, 2011 Share Posted February 13, 2011 Hello, I am currently at a well ranked US Business School (T20) studying economics and mathematics. GPA around 3.5-3.6 due to heavy quant basis& one really awful grade. Strong ECs, study abroad. Not URM. This is going to sound a bit out of the ordinary, but I am quite interested in theology. I have taken two courses over the past two years, receiving an A and A-. Also took an intro philosophy, received an A. Same grades in all of my core humanities courses. Catholic & particular interest in St. Francis. I read a variety of texts for fun, and personally enjoy the ancient through early medieval period. Interests: Christian History (Franciscan). Lack of language probably precludes me from studying Biblical I suppose.... I will be graduating a year early due to various factors, and have the ability to take 2-3 more humanities/theology/philosophy courses in addition to fulfilling all outstanding requirements prior to graduation. I have no modern language ability outside of HS Spanish & a semester of intensive Italian abroad (yikes!), and absolutely no experience with Latin/Greek/Hebrew. Does anyone have suggestions for graduate programs which would accept me and meet my needs? Many of my professors have encouraged graduate studies, even my humanities professors; it is my dream to finish a PhD and teach. Bottom line, I love just about everything I study except business. Econ is not business, and math is pure logic (beauty for that matter)! I wish I would have figured this out ages ago, but better late than never Not to brag, but I am often praised for my writing & speaking ability from professors and peers (although I do not agree, relative to the authors I read). This is somewhat encouraging from my perspective..... 1)Is MTS the best option? MDiv, MA etc? 2)Should I take intro Latin (Greek not a possibility) over humanities type courses? 3)Thoughts of becoming a Brother Minor, but primarily interested in academic route at the moment. 4)Financial Aid would be wonderful. Looking to avoid very expensive programs, max 15k/year. Finally, I want TRUE Catholic theologians: AKA NO modernist garbage!!! Looked into the Franciscan School of Theology (FST). The ND MTS would probably not accept me with my background.... Thanks a million! Suggestions sincerely appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
