Collaboration Agreement for SNU and NTS

Nazarene Graduate Theological Studies Union

Southern Nazarene University, School of Theology and Ministry in Bethany, OK and Nazarene Theological Seminary in Kansas City, MO have entered into collaboration agreement, which will strengthen the academic and co-curricular programs of both institutions.

Both institutions are committed to strong academic scholarship, intentional spiritual formation, and to the preparation of men and women for ministry, primarily in the Church of the Nazarene.

The purpose of the Nazarene Graduate Theological Studies Union agreement is to expand the formal educational opportunities for graduate students at Nazarene colleges, universities and seminary. It will better utilize and coordinate the resources available through Nazarene schools in preparing students for ministry.

A student desiring to participate in the collaborative degree program would seek admission to both institutions. Selected courses would be accepted by NTS enabling students to take up to 45 hours of graduate credit at SNU toward the NTS M.Div. degree while earning a MA in Theology at SNU.
