Master of Arts

The Master of Arts is an academic degree program offered cooperatively by the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) and the schools participating in the consortium. Referred to as the GTU Common M.A., the degree is jointly conferred by one of the member schools and the GTU. Students who choose to affiliate with CDSP are eligible for financial aid from CDSP and pay their tuition to CDSP. A member of the CDSP faculty serves as the initial academic advisor and later as the primary thesis advisor.

Application forms for this program are available directly from the GTU Admissions Office. Completed applications are due to that office by the above deadlines and are reviewed by the Admissions Committees of both the GTU and CDSP.
