Progression Through the Program
Students need to maintain a cumulative scholastic average of “B” (3.0). Only two courses of “B-“ or lower can be used to fulfill degree requirements. With the exception of students who complete the Institute for Lay Ecclesial Ministry of the Diocese of Trenton, or a similar program approved by the director, are required to complete 36 credit hours (12 courses) for the degree. ILEM and other similarly approved students need to complete 30 credit hours (10 courses) for the degree with a concentration in Church Ministry. The Curriculum Guide published by the office of the graduate program in Theology and Ministry details the specific courses for each concentration. Students can obtain the guide by contacting the office at 215.951.1335.
