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.
In the meanwhile, go to www.dspt.edu and look around the school a bit!
