Try a Seminary Course

The seminary continues its tradition of opening its doors to all kinds of learners by offering courses for audit to the public.

There are five courses offered at the seminary this fall that are open for auditors . That means you can be in the class but not receive academic credit. Four courses do not require prerequisites, and would be ideal for anyone wanting to learn more about religion, spirituality, and theology from top level instructors. One course,  Exegesis of the Hebrew Bible: Psalms, does require auditors to have an MDiv or MTS degree.

An audit application is required if you would like to take a class. The seminary has reduced its audit fee to $40 per credit hour to encourage more people to experience theological education. A limited number of auditors may be permitted in some courses, depending on the course size and the type of the course.

To begin the application process, or to find out more about the audit program at Phillips, please contact MaryAnn Morris  or call  918.270.6464.


Some highlights of courses:

Theological Themes in the Contemporary Novel with Dr. Joseph Bessler will explore how contemporary novels pose theological questions and reflection. The course will consider a variety of genres and sub-genres of late 20th and early 21st-century literature. The course is a weeklong intensive from Oct. 16–20.

The Rev. Dr. Mady Fraser will lead a weekend course on Celtic Spiritual Disciplines, Dec. 1–2 at the seminary. This is a small group experience with a focus on the holistic, egalitarian, and earth-connected spiritual perspectives and disciplines of Celtic Christianity, a sect of Christianity which arose in the British Isles prior to the 8th century.

Phillips Theological Seminary offers Christian graduate theological education
in service of intelligent, just, and compassionate religious and civic communities. We welcome
students to a safe space for truth-seeking conversations about the Bible, Jesus, and faithful living.
Courses available on campus and online for certificate, diploma, MDiv, MAMC, MASJ, & MTS
programs, and on campus for the DMin program.
