The Newark School of Theology is an ecumenical and interfaith school of theology for persons who desire to take advanced courses in theology without having first to matriculate at a school whose primary mission is professional education for the ordained ministry. All of our courses are taught at the upper-division or master's level of university and seminary study by teachers who have earned graduate degrees.
Certificate programs are offered in Christian Studies, Pastoral Counseling, and Diaconal Studies. Classes are offered in the Bible, Christian Theology, Theological Ethics, Church History, Jewish Studies, World Religions, Counseling, Biblical Hebrew, New Testament Greek, Homiletics, and Christian Education.
Classes are small (most are from five to ten members) in order to offer students opportunities to be fully engaged in classroom activities. Our students come from a variety of educational, religious, economic, and ethnic backgrounds. Commitment to the academic study of theology in an open and pluralistic environment is what unites our diverse student body and faculty into a single learning community.
Students earn recommendation for college credits at the graduate and upper-division baccalaureate levels through The American Council on Education for a number of our courses.
The Newark School of Theology is located in downtown Newark close to The New Jersey Performing Arts Center. Safe, lighted parking is available at the school. Most classes are held in the evening for the convenience of students who work during the day.
