Master's Degrees

Princeton Theological Seminary offers seven master’s degree programs. Students will find diversity and experiential learning at the forefront of Princeton Seminary’s new curriculum. Students are exposed to different theological voices and perspectives on campus and in the community. Coursework emphasizes the development of each individual student’s spiritual life and goals, while preparing them with the leadership development and academic rigor essential for flourishing in the 21st century.
