The Department typically admits around 5 students each year to the MTS program. We welcome all
qualified applicants and offer competitive funding for our top applicants. Successful applicants to the
MTS program have a strong background in the humanities and/or social sciences. A theology degree
is not a prerequisite for admission. Interestedstudents should apply at
http://www.slu.edu/graduate-admission-home by January 1. Application requirements include:
transcript(s), three letters of recommendation, GRE scores, resume, and a personal statement indicating
academic and professional goals.
We welcome campus visits from those who are considering applying to the MTS program. Interested
students should contact Dr. Mary Dunn, Director of Graduate Studies, to arrange a convenient time to
visit classes and to meet with faculty in their area of interest and current students in the program.
There are several forms of financial aid available to MTS students, including tuition scholarships and a
limited number of partial graduate assistantships.
