The Accelerated BA/MDiv program is designed to reduce the time and cost to become a Lutheran (ELCA) pastor. Normally, this process takes eight years total, but this program allows the student to finish in six. The program looks like this:
- Three years at Wartburg College in Waverly (One term using Wartburg Seminary’s digital learning platform)
- Three years at Wartburg Seminary in Dubuque (Using Wartburg Seminary’s digital learning platform while working with a congregation.)
The Collaborative Learning Model of Wartburg Seminary is an innovative approach to delivering theological education. Students are taught by seminary faculty, trained supervisors, and mentors in a local congregation.
