McCormick Theological Seminary

McCormick Theological Seminary


McCormick is a theological center for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). It also welcomes many students from outside this denomination. Focusing its resources on education for the ministry, it emphasizes both preprofessional (M.T.S. and M.Div.) and professional (DMin) studies. Its programs in Hispanic ministries, African American ministries, and urban ministry, its dual-competency programs in social work and other fields, and its emphasis on internationalization add to its other offerings. Students are encouraged to plan, with advice, their own courses of study.
