As a part of our partnership with Chicago Theological Seminary (CTS), students at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary have the opportunity to complete a concentration in LGBTQ Studies.
Master of Divinity students wishing to complete the concentration will take a minimum of five courses that CTS has identified as an LGBTQ concentration elective. Courses will be offered in a mix of online, intensive, and regular semester courses on the CTS campus in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago. Students completing the concentration will have it reflected as a concentration on their Garrett-Evangelical transcripts.
More information about specific courses and the requirements that they meet can be found below. If you have additional questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
To complete a concentration in LGBTQ Studies, Garrett-Evangelical MDiv students will be required to complete a minimum of five courses listed as LGBTQ concentration electives. It is recommended that the courses cover the following areas, if possible – Theory, Practice, Biblical background, and Theological background.
Students may get a list of approved courses for the concentration from the CTS registrar or look for the LGBTQ courses in the CTS three year course plan. Students wishing to complete the concentration should begin planning early in their studies to make sure they have the time needed to complete the courses.
Below is a sample based on recent and current course offerings. Consult with your advisor and/or the registrar when selecting courses for the concentration. These courses are subject to change based on CTS course offerings.
