All graduate theological education is challenging, no doubt. There are seemingly endless pages to read and scores of pages to write. But see what Phillips graduate B. Yuki Schwartz, a Ph.D. student at a Chicago area school, wrote of the support for meeting challenges at Phillips:
“Community at Phillips plays a huge part in understanding. We sit with and listen to one another, challenge, accept, push, and transform each other. I learned, both in the classroom and beyond that to be a person of faith is to be a person open to embracing relationships with others, by those who both challenge and accept us. Faith doesn’t happen alone. We experience God with one another. I was changed, and truly became a person of faith in my time at Phillips.”
At Phillips, you will be challenged by the work, the reading and writing, the depth of reflection. You will also experience a community in which the challenges can be successfully met.
