Academic overviews

A full-time faculty of 22 persons is committed to providing both personal and challenging educational opportunities for students. Six of the faculty are women. Two are African American. Two were born abroad -- in India and Australia. Through the past 135-plus years, the faculty at the Seminary has been known for its academic excellence.

Since a majority of faculty live on campus, they are available to students in the classroom, in their offices in Hagan Center, and in some cases at their homes.

In addition to information on this web site, our catalogue will provide you with the current photographs, academic positions and educational background. Also in the catalogue, you may find descriptions of all courses.

The academic calendar is a 4-1-4 model. Classes normally begin the week after Labor Day and the Fall Semester concludes before Christmas. A January Term involves special ministry seminars and classes. The Spring Semester begins in early February and concludes in early May.

The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia is accredited by the Association of Theological Schools and by the Middle States Association.
