The Applied Theology program of Concordia University Wisconsin provides you with a foundational understanding of the doctrine and teaching of the Holy Christian Church as you consider the decision to pursue seminary training.


Answer your calling

The Lord asked, "Who will go for us?" and Isaiah answered, "Here am I! Send me!" Do you hope to answer the call to become a pastor? Your desire to serve is an encouragement to us. The Church needs loving and grounded shepherds to lead believers while here on earth. Though there is joy in service, you likely recognize the weight of such a vocation. Let us guide you in prayerful consideration and the awareness building it takes to pursue seminary training.

If you intend to pursue a Master of Divinity at seminary, the Applied Theology program of Concordia University Wisconsin provides you with a basic overview of the Scriptures and Lutheran doctrine. While our curriculum teaches Lutheran doctrine and our school is affiliated with the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, all students who desire to prepare for the pastoral office (regardless of denominational affiliation) are welcome. Our theology faculty is made up of pastors dedicated to guiding, challenging, and encouraging you as you work toward completion of this program.

What to expect

You will study the background and teaching of the Lutheran Church as confessed in the Book of Concord and will be grounded in the Lutheran ethos, identity, and ethic. Although not required, you are encouraged to double major in theological languages alongside the applied theology major. This program provides a solid base for further theological training; it does not train you to be a pastor.
