Programs

Cross-Registration for Seminary Students

Students enrolled in a degree program at one of the member schools are eligible to take courses at one of the other seminaries at the same tuition rate and with automatic credit transfer to the student’s school. Students are registered on a space-available basis, with priority going to students of the school at which the course is scheduled. Students registering under the consortium agreement pay tuition through the student’s home school. Residential courses scheduled in the fall-summer terms are available under this program, subject to policy of the offering school. Online courses are excluded. Students can use the Universal Registration Form 01-2012 to register for courses at another seminary in the Consortium.

Libraries

The five theological libraries of the consortium seminaries comprise the Minnesota Theological Library Association (MTLA). The libraries hold about 775,000 volumes representing about 350,000 unique titles. These holdings constitute the most significant resource in religious studies between Chicago and the West Coast. In addition, each of the MTLA libraries provides many other electronic resources, both online and on site, tailored to their constituencies. Contact the libraries for information. View the MTLA site for information and links to each of the libraries.

Northland Ministries Partnership

Northland Ministry Partnership (NMP) helps train and support pastoral leaders to be effective in their rural communities. One way NMP is accomplishing this is through a biennial, rural, immersion program in cooperation with Shalom Hill Farm in Windom, MN.

The Science and Theology Network promotes teaching and learning that bring together religious wisdom and scientific knowledge for the challenges of our culture today, with a special focus on the communities of the upper Midwest. View the Science and Theology Network site.

Guthrie Theater Partnership

The Guthrie Theater, in partnership with MNCTS, hosts post-play panel discussions that include consortium seminary faculty members and members of the cast of the play who reflect on significant themes of the play and respond to questions and comments from the audience. The Mountaintop will be the play featured in our next panel discussions on April 5 and 11. More information about the play is available at the Guthrie Theater website.
