Saint John’s Seminary is a private, nonprofit institution operating with the approval of the state of Massachusetts. The Master of Arts in Ministry (MAM) and the Master of Theological Studies for the New Evangelization (MTS), are open to all laypersons, permanent deacons, and religious, without regard to race, gender, national origin, age, disabilities, or veteran status.
The basic requirement for admission to the MAM or MTS Programs is a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution. The applicant must submit a completed written application with the accompanying application fee of $75.00. The application includes an essay, official undergraduate and any graduate transcripts, and three recommendations. Upon receipt of the above-mentioned materials, an admissions interview will be scheduled. For the MAM degree, confidential psychological testing will be arranged by the MAM Director. The final admissions decision is made by the Seminary Admissions Board.
Students are typically admitted throughout the year for the fall, spring, or summer sessions. Auditors and non-degree students are welcome to register for classes as long as space is available.
