Why Choose Phillips

The top reasons students choose to study at Phillips Theological Seminary include: 

  • Quality and accessibility of the faculty.
  • Progressive, ecumenical, heart-and-mind expanding curriculum (we're often told it is "surprising" to find a school like PTS in this part of the country).
  • Reputation for taking both scholarship and ministry seriously.
  • A diverse community of learners, including women and men of varying ages, denominations, ethnicities, theologies, sexual orientations and political persuasions.
  • Flexible scheduling, with classes taught online and in several on-campus formats.
  • Scholarship assistance.

Some students choose Phillips because they live in the region, or because Phillips is approved to educate candidates from their denomination for ministry. And what they find is a high quality education, real community and new way to think.
