Plan of Study
With PTS, you can earn your Master of Divinity—no matter your undergraduate training. You’ll simply follow one of two tracks designed to build on your previous education.
Up to 24 hours of advanced standing can be granted for certain undergraduate coursework, and up to 32 hours of credits can be transferred from a seminary degree. At least 64 credit hours must be completed through PTS. If you have not taken Baptist Polity and/or Church Planting as a PCC undergraduate, you’ll add to your track PT 501 Baptist Polity and/or PT 513 Evangelism and Church Planting.
