While every effort is made to ensure that the information contained in this catalog is correct at the time of publication, it is not intended that the Catalog establish a contractual relationship. The seminary reserves the right to make alterations without prior notice, in accordance with the seminary’s institutional needs and academic purposes.

The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia is fully accredited by the Association of Theological Schools, 10 Summit Park Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15275-1103, the major accrediting agency of theological seminaries in the United States and Canada.

The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia is one of eight seminaries affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), a denomination with nearly 10,000 congregations in the United States and 4 million baptized members. The seminary is specifically related to the synods of ELCA Region 7 and relates also to Regions 8 and 9 through its participation in the Eastern Cluster of Lutheran Seminaries.

The Eastern Cluster, formed in 1995, is a cooperative theological venture of LTSP, the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, PA, and Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary of Lenoir-Rhyne University, Columbia, SC. The partnership seeks to share resources and utilize the strengths of each institution to enhance the opportunities for theological education for the students of all three seminaries.

INTRODUCTION
HISTORY
The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (LTSP) is one of eight seminaries of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

LTSP is proud of the Lutheran confessional tradition that inspired its founding in 1864 by the Ministerium of Pennsylvania, the oldest Lutheran synod in America. Its first classes were held in facilities on North Ninth Street in Philadelphia. In 1872 the Ministerium of New York joined in support of the seminary by endowing a professorship and receiving representation on the Board of Trustees.

In 1889 the seminary was relocated northwest to the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia, a section of the city nationally regarded today for its rich history of multicultural diversity and cooperation. The 14-acre campus has historic importance as well. The first shots of the American Revolution’s Battle of Germantown were fired on land that later became its campus. The Refectory, where thousands of seminarians enjoyed meals and conversation for many decades, dates to 1792. The Hagan Administration Center incorporates the mansion from the former Gowen estate, owned by the family that operated the Reading Railroad. Four buildings on the campus were designed by Reading Railroad architect Frank Furness, one of Philadelphia’s most famous architects.

In 1903 the Board reorganized to include representatives of what was then known as the Pittsburgh Synod and the Synod of New York and New England. In 1950, the Synod of New Jersey was formed, and its representatives also began serving on the Board.

In 1908 the Krauth Memorial Library was dedicated. At the dedication ceremony, the Library was noted to be “the handsomest library building connected with any American Theological Seminary and a monument thoroughly representative of the best in the Lutheran Church and worthy of her great future in this country.”

Since the formation of the Lutheran Church in America (LCA) in 1962 and subsequently of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) in 1988, the seminary has been administered by a Board of Trustees elected by those synods assigned to it by the Church as supporting synods with additional Trustees elected by the Church Council of the ELCA.

An important moment in the development of LTSP occurred in 1979, when the LTSP Board of Directors authorized the establishment of the Urban Theological Institute (UTI) as a program of the seminary. The vision for the UTI originated with the Revs. Randolph L. Jones and Andrew H. Willis, who dreamed of a program with full academic integrity that would provide a theological degree through classes in the evenings and on Saturdays. Intended particularly for students from African American churches and worship traditions, the degree program was designed with a focus on ministry in the urban context. The first UTI students began their studies in 1980. Today many UTI graduates hold outstanding leadership roles in various denominations and are actively involved in their communities, and the UTI continues to sponsor the annual Preaching with Power series, featuring sermons in actual congregational settings by renowned African American preachers of the United States. The UTI also sponsors two non-credit certificate programs by which participants can enhance their skills for leadership in the church, whether or not they have prior bachelor’s degrees.

While strongly rooted in the confessional Lutheran tradition of its origin, LTSP has established a record of distinguished service to a variety of other traditions that form the pluralistic texture of the northeastern United States. Students from more than 40 denominational backgrounds have studied here. The seminary enjoys United Methodist certification and prepares diaconal students for the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania. It offers Black Church, Latino, multicultural, interfaith, and metropolitan/urban concentrations in recognition of its context and of today’s evolving ministry needs. The Master of Arts in Public Leadership program, which graduated its first students in 2011, combines theological learning with disciplines such as business and social work. The Advanced Degree program offers professional leaders continuing education toward the Doctor of Ministry, Master of Sacred Theology, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees.

Having graduated nearly 4,000 church leaders, the seminary has completed an ambitious campus renewal initiative. The state-of-the-art Brossman Learning Center opened in Fall 2005 and quickly became the new hub of the campus, housing Enrollment Services offices and a number of learning resource centers, as well as high-tech classrooms, seminar and study rooms, a great hall, mail center, and common rooms. The Schaeffer-Ashmead Chapel has been renovated to accommodate more varied worship styles and is joined by William Allen Plaza, which connects the seminary campus to the Mt. Airy business district and acts as both a plaza open to the community and as a setting for activities. The Wiedemann Center, dedicated in 1998, provides contemporary housing for seminarians and their families, as well as the offices of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Synod of the ELCA.

The seminary also sees several initiatives as part of its mission to prepare leaders for the Church in the 21st century. They include its Theological Education with Youth (TEY) outreach, funded by the Lilly Endowment Inc., which encourages high school youth to fall in love with theology by taking part in a Summer Theological Academy or by studying as part of a Counselors-in-Training program. The Asian Theological Summer Institute is an annual mentoring program for doctoral students of Asian heritage, supported by the Henry Luce Foundation. Our Adult Learning/Continuing Education Office provides lifelong learning opportunities to both laypersons and rostered leaders. All are welcome to explore ways to study at LTSP.

VALUES STATEMENT*

The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia bears witness to the love of God as a diverse worshipping learning community—centered in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and grounded in scripture, the Confessional tradition, and worship—preparing women and men for service in the mission of the church. This common Christian calling leads us to affirm the following values:



  • Community and Hospitality: The seminary shall be a hospitable place, welcoming and open to all who study, work, and visit here and to the community at large.

  • Diversity: The seminary affirms its Biblical, Liturgical, and Lutheran Confessional heritage and welcomes and thrives on the diversity of traditions that participate in its community, including the cultural diversity represented within the Philadelphia metropolitan area and in the world.

  • Inclusivity: LTSP is an inclusive community that invites participation in its programs of study. As disciples of Christ committed to public leadership among God’s people in diverse and challenging cultural contexts, we eagerly learn from and welcome one another’s diversity, including, but not limited to theological and ecclesial perspective, race, ethnicity, nationality, gender identity, age, physical ability, veteran’s status, social and economic status, and sexual orientation.

  • Civility: The seminary values civility in discourse, honesty, kindness, and courtesy in action, and mutual respect.

  • Participation: The seminary seeks openness in decision-making and policy-setting processes. It seeks always to include in the process of deliberation parties affected by the decisions and to keep them informed.

  • Academic Rigor: The seminary recognizes the importance of high academic standards, rigor, and frankness as essential to the critical discussion of ideas and policies. It affirms the value of education for all members of the seminary community, including life-long learning for clergy, laity, and staff.

  • Community Health: The seminary seeks to advance and protect the health and wholeness of all members of the community, including single people and families. It acknowledges the diversity of family structures within the community. It does not tolerate physical/verbal/sexual harassment or abuse.

  • Cooperation: The seminary fosters cooperation with other institutions of the church such as the Eastern Lutheran Cluster of Seminaries, the synods of the ELCA, and the judicatories, seminaries, and congregations of other denominations with which we collaborate.

*As approved by the LTSP Board of Trustees, April 2010. Commentaries on the mission and values statements can be found online at www.ltsp.edu/missionvalues.

ADMISSION
ADMISSION PROCEDURES

  • The Master of Divinity (MDiv) requires the equivalent of three years of full-time academic study, in addition to any additional ecclesiastical requirements expected of a student. Admission requires that the student hold a bachelor’s or equivalent undergraduate degree.

  • The Master of Arts in Religion (MAR) requires the equivalent of two years of full-time academic study. Admission requires that the student hold a bachelor’s or equivalent undergraduate degree.

  • The Master of Arts in Public Leadership (MAPL) requires the equivalent of two years of full-time academic study. Admission requires that the student hold a bachelor’s or equivalent undergraduate degree.

  • The Master of Sacred Theology (STM) can be completed in one to two years of full-time study. Admission requires that the student hold a first theological degree involving at least 60 semesters of study.

  • The Doctor of Ministry (DMin) expects the students to engage in both academic study and professional ministry over at least a three-year period. The student must hold an MDiv or equivalent degree involving at least 78 semester hours of study.

  • The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) requires two years of full-time residency at LTSP, followed by comprehensive examinations and preparation of a dissertation. The student must hold an MDiv or equivalent degree for admission.

The Admissions Office is available to assist prospective students with information regarding the application process, degree programs, the particular attributes of LTSP and the Philadelphia area, and student life. The seminary encourages and invites all prospective students to visit campus and participate in chapel, classes, and community life.

Application for admission to first theological degree programs (MDiv, MAPL, and MAR degrees) should be made three to nine months in advance of one’s expected entrance. The Admissions Committee receives and makes decisions on applications throughout the year, but early decisions are advisable in order to establish eligibility for financial aid and campus housing. Those whose applications are complete by April 15 (for Fall enrollment) receive priority in housing and financial aid considerations. Advanced-level (STM and DMin) applicants who intend to be part-time students should begin the application process three to six months in advance. PhD applicants must complete their applications for admission no later than January 15 of the year in which they hope to begin in the Fall.

Admission standards for each academic program are listed separately within the description of each program (see pp. 24–38). For all degree programs, however, the following general materials must be submitted for a complete application:



  • Application form. This should normally be completed online (http://ltsp.edu/application-admission), or contact the Admissions Office.

  • A nonrefundable $40 application fee

  • References as described for the particular degree program

  • An essay addressing the questions described in the application instructions

  • Official transcripts of all prior academic work sent directly from the issuing institution to the Admissions Office. Student copies and other third-party copies are not acceptable. Current undergraduate applicants who have not yet received their degrees may submit transcripts of their programs in progress; any admission is subject to review following completion of the degree and submission of an official final transcript.



  • Applicants whose first language is other than English are expected to submit TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) results from within two years of the application. Test results must be sent directly from the Educational Testing Service; photocopies will not be accepted. A minimum score of 523 (193 on the computer-based test, 70 on the internet-based test) is expected for first theological degree applicants. Advanced-level (non-PhD) applicants should achieve scores of at least 550 to 570 on the paper-based test (213 to 232 on the computer-based test, 80 to 89 on the internet-based test). PhD applicants are expected to achieve minimum scores of 570 to 583 on the paper-based test (232 to 237 on the computer-based test, 88 to 92 on the Internet-based test). Testing information is available at the following address:

LTSP reserves the right to require additional credentials in any particular case, including an interview, and to solicit information from anyone in a position to evaluate an applicant’s qualifications. The seminary may refuse admission to any applicant for any justifiable reason.

While “firmly committed to Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions,” LTSP is intentionally open to “theological education that is inter-confessional, inclusive, and cross-cultural.” The students at LTSP thus represent a wide range of Christian traditions.
International Students

International students should submit a separate international student application, available from the Office of Admissions. A complete application will also include:



  • A letter of endorsement or recommendation from the head of the applicant’s home church, from a competent ecclesiastical authority, or from a religious institution.

  • Certification of the applicant’s ability to meet the financial costs of round-trip travel, tuition, housing, and personal expenses. Student visas cannot by US federal law be approved without guarantee of ability to pay all costs. LTSP normally does not provide scholarships to international students, except as noted below.

  • Scores for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Information is available at www.toefl.org.

  • For advanced-level students, scores for the Test of Written English (TWE), in addition to TOEFL, along with a letter from a professor or other qualified person certifying the student’s ability to read technical material in English and to write in English at a level suited to advanced-level study.

  • Checks submitted in payment of application fees and deposits must be payable in US dollars, drawn on a US bank, with the bank’s computer code located in the lower left corner of the check. Checks not meeting these requirements will be returned, which may delay admission.

  • International Students are responsible for payment of the SEVIS (Student and Exchange Visitor Information System) fee upon application for an F-1 visa.

  • Where prior transcripts are essential to establishing an applicant’s eligibility for a degree but the institution is unknown to Admissions staff, the applicant may be required to provide a credential evaluation report from a transcript evaluation service, such as World Education Service (WES). Such a credential evaluation report will also be required if the student seeks to have credits transferred from a non-US institution to an LTSP degree program. The WES website is wes.org.

Applicants should note that the seminary does not generally provide financial assistance to international students other than those officially sponsored by their churches through the Scholarship Program of the ELCA/Lutheran World Federation/World Council of Churches. International students must seek other means of support.

International students on F-1 visas need to be enrolled full-time in the Fall and Spring semesters, according to US government policies.


Transfer Students

A student wishing to transfer from another ATS-accredited institution must file an application for admission, submit an official transcript of seminary work completed, and present a letter of honorable dismissal from the dean or president of the school he/she is currently attending. ELCA students are also directed to provide evidence of current candidacy status.

At least one full year must be spent in residence at LTSP in order to qualify for a Master of Divinity or Master of Arts in Religion degree, and students should not expect that all prior coursework will be accepted in transfer. [Normally the Master in Public Leadership program is not available to transfer students.] See the rules governing transfer credits in the Registration Catalog (first theological degree-level) or in advanced degree program manuals.
Affiliated, “Lutheran Year,” and TEEM Students of the ELCA

Admission requirements may vary according to the specific form of study for an individual student. See the special section (pp 31–32) dedicated to this topic for a description of these distinctive categories.


TUITION AND FEES 2014–2015
