The Hybrid-Distance Program is an alternative suitable for those for whom relocation into a full-time residential program is not currently feasible. This enables you to earn a Nashotah House degree while you remain where God has currently called you to serve. What sets Nashotah House apart from other seminaries is the opportunity four times a year (once every quarter) to be formed by the Benedictine rhythms of prayer, work, and study that are fostered by twice-daily worship, academics, meals, and fellowship shared with their Hybrid-Distance cohort and with the greater Nashotah House community.
For those called to ordained ministry and/or chaplaincy, the Master of Pastoral Ministry (MPM) covers the seven subject areas specified for study for ordination and contains all subject matter and credit hours required by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) for an MDiv degree, as well as preparing its students for the General Ordination Exams (GOEs). Sharpen your skills in biblical theology, homiletics, liturgical leadership, ascetical theology, and more when you choose this professionally focused ministry degree.Learn More
Available in both Residential and Hybrid-Distance formats, the Master of Theological Studies (MTS) is an academically-focused degree especially suited for those considering advanced graduate study or those pursuing lay ministry in the Church. A Nashotah House MTS degree provides a thorough grounding in academic theological study while also allowing the student to pursue further concentration in four specific areas of theology: Christian Theology, Anglican Studies, Church History, and Holy Scripture.Learn More
The Master of Ministry (MM) is a first professional degree in ministerial leadership, focusing on biblical knowledge, theology, church history, homiletics, liturgy, and pastoral ministry, designed to train those serving the church in lay and ordained ministries for which the MDiv (residential) or MPM (hybrid-distance) are not deemed the required path of training. Students range from ordained clergy strengthening their theological foundations for ministry to lay persons informing their faith and/or discerning a call to ministry. The MM degree is normally completed in just over two years.Learn More
Available in both Residential and Hybrid-Distance formats, the Diploma in Anglican Studies (DAS) is a one-year program designed to ground students in Anglican beliefs, theology, history, method, and devotion.

For students with prior graduate-level experience seeking supplementary training, the Certificate in Anglican Ministry (CAM) is a non-degree option that provides a foundation in areas of ministry and history from a classic Anglican context.Learn More
