Here's some information about a new degree program being developed at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology - the Western Dominican graduate school and seminary.

The Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology (Berkeley, CA) is a ministry of the Western Dominican Province. All of our Dominican priests and brothers receive their formal education there. The School is also open to lay women and men who wish to study in the Dominican tradition. The School is looking for people to participate in a survey intended to evaluate the current demand for a possible new graduate program – a Master of Theological Studies (MTS) - and to gather input to fully define the specifics of the program.

The Master of Theological Studies (MTS) is a Master of Arts degree designed for women and men who have professional experience and seek to enhance their contribution to Church and society. It is intended to provide students with a foundation in interpretive skills so that they can integrate their professional experience with the mission and tradition of the Church. The MTS will, like all programs offered by DSPT, be grounded in official Church doctrine and based on traditional Dominican heritage. The program will not require a thesis, but rather a pre-approved, alternative project will be accepted for evaluation.

If you are interested in participating in the survey, please contact the Academic Dean, Fr. Chris Renz by June 21, 2009 at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . The survey will be launched on Monday June 22nd, at which time all those who have contacted Fr. Chris will receive an e-mail with a link to the survey.

In the meanwhile, go to and look around the school a bit!
