The C.T.S. is designed for students who wish to pursue graduate theological education without earning a degree.
The program, available on campus or online, is especially appropriate for those people who are seeking spiritual enrichment or who might be thinking about coming to seminary, but want to try out a few classes first.
The C.T.S. may also be used as part of a diocesan program of ministry development, in which case CDSP would work closely with that diocese to formulate a curriculum that meets local needs. Students in the C.T.S. program have access to all resources and services provided by the seminary to its student body.
