The New Seminary offers a program specifically designed to meet the needs of people with advanced degrees. We invite individuals with higher degrees in Psychology, Social Work, Pastoral Education, Religious Studies, Chaplaincy, or Healing Arts to join us in this intensive one year Accelerated Program culminating in Ordination. This dynamic program integrates the First and Second year curriculum, and adds special projects created for the Accelerated Student. Monthly online and phone bridge study groups are mandatory. Class size is small to support individual attention. Accelerated Students are required to attend Fall and Spring Intensives and a three and half day retreat in June prior to Ordination. Due to the intensity of the program, we recommend that this be the only advanced program the student participates in during the year. Please inquire for further information.
Applications for classes beginning in September 2016 are now being accepted for Ordination in June 2017. Prompt application and acceptance will ensure a place in the fall class.
