What’s the Difference Between a Divinity School and a Seminary?

We are glad you asked. Seminaries often seek to train students in theology while focusing on practical ministry training for a specific denomination. Divinity schools, however, are known more for their academic rigor, research, and cross-disciplinary training across several fields of study within a university setting.

Trinity Evangelical Divinity School strives to be the best of both. You will be pushed to new levels of academic achievement, as well as receive well-rounded training for practical ministry within the church. You will also be taught by faculty from multiple evangelical denominations who are recognized globally for their academic excellence and contributions to their respective fields.

What sets TEDS apart from other divinity schools is our devotion to Gospel fidelity. In addition, our faculty live out the gospel – leading ministries, churches, and denominations around the world while bringing academic excellence and sound doctrine to the whole body of Christ.

We invite you to join this growing legacy at Trinity!
