About Seminary Comparison

Brought to you by Dallas Theological Seminary

Seminary Comparison is brought to you by Dallas Theological Seminary. Dallas Theological Seminary believes that biblical training is essential for life-long, Christ-honoring ministry. It’s so important that we want to help you choose a great seminary—even if it’s not DTS. These data alone cannot and should not determine the seminary you attend, but we hope they help you better discern what God would have you do to bring glory to Him.

 “Curriculum” refers to degrees that are at least three years long such as an M.Div. program or DTS’s 4-year integrated Th.M.. Schools with quarter units (QU) have been converted to semesters by multiplying by 2/3.

 Degree costs are generally based on a per credit hour cost, but some schools have per semester or per program costs. For Southern Baptist church seminaries, the discounted rate (usually around 50%) is listed in parenthesis.
