degrees & Certificate


degrees & Certificate


Indianapolis Theological Seminary offers two degrees and one certificate:

The aim of the MDiv and MA is to graduate students who are adept at:

  • Hermeneutics & Biblical Theology,
  • Historical & Systematic Theology,
  • Cultural Apologetics,
  • Ministerial Leadership, and
  • Spiritual Transformation. 

The GCCS aims at giving students a diverse sampling of these areas of study.  Read more about these distinctives here.

The unique component about the MDiv and MA is that a significant number of the courses will be offered in local church contexts (internships, apprenticeships, etc.) while the rest will be taught in classroom settings.  Thus, ITS has the vision of wedding robust graduate-level academic instruction with real ministerial experience right here in Indianapolis.  Internships will be carried out as arranged by the student and the supervising church/pastor; in-class courses will meet on Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday nights with occasional weekend intensives.  Those who graduate with the GCCS can still use those earned credits towards the MA or MDiv.

What?


Why?

Some areas of study are better accomplished by immersion into the life and daily activities of practitioners. The purpose of ITS internships is to provide students with real-world learning experiences that will foster practical ministry wisdom with strong theological moorings in the context of healthy Christian ministries, led by tried and proven practitioners. Students will learn practical details of the specific ministry in which they are interning, apply theological knowledge to said ministry, and produce experiential ministry fruit (preach, teach, counseling, evangelize, disciple, etc.). 


    When?

    The timing of these internships is very flexible.  Students can fit them into their schedule as suites them best in the course of pursuing a degree, beginning with the 500 level internships right away.  The 600 and 700 level internships are better experiences after having some Bible and Theology classes first.  The Preaching internships have Hermeneutics as a prerequisite.


    Where?

    Students should locate their own internship or may approach the ITS Internship Director (ID) for assistance in securing an internship. The internship may or may not be completed in the student’s home church. The student should consider an opportunity which will broaden their experience and add depth to their resume.
