Brite Divinity School is one of the premier teaching and research institutions in the Southwest. In 1998 Brite began offering a Ph.D. degree in two areas: Pastoral Theology and Pastoral Care and Biblical Interpretation. In addition, Brite offers several masters degrees: Master of Theological Studies, Master of Arts in Theology and Ministry, Master of Divinity, and Master of Theology.
Accredited by the Association of Theological Schools and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Brite Divinity School is one of four seminaries related to the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the denomination’s only seminary related to a university. The Divinity School is also approved by the United Methodist Church to teach United Methodist students preparing for ordained ministry. In addition, nine denominations and one Jewish faculty member are represented on the faculty and staff.
The Divinity School has some twenty faculty and administrators whose research and teaching fields cover the full range of theological disciplines. Many of the faculty have developed distinguished careers in teaching and research and are among the most recognized scholars and teachers in North America. Students at the Divinity School represent some twenty-eight different denominations and numerous ethnic and racial identities. The Divinity School considers this theological and multicultural diversity of students and faculty to be an important context for coming to a clear understanding of individual faith and practice.
