A Brite education can make a difference in your life and equip you to make a difference in the world. With its respected faculty, generous financial aid, excellent and affordable student housing and wide variety of opportunities for meaningful employment, the seminary offers a range of study programs to develop lay and ordained church leaders and theological scholars ready to lead in church and world.
What to Expect
Theological education at Brite goes beyond simply increasing knowledge to deepening students’ understanding of their own faith in the context of the larger world. Students are encouraged to think critically and to engage the major social issues of our day. Brite nurtures the gifts required to meet the challenges of congregational leadership, helping churches to grow and thrive as vital communities of faith. In addition, degree programs have been specially designed to equip leaders for non-congregational settings of ministry, with lay and continuing education programs that increase readiness for ministry with particular attention to underserved populations.
The first step in pursuing your Brite education is completing an on-line application and downloading application materials. Our Admissions staff is ready to answer your questions and help you through the application process. We will gladly arrange for you to attend a class, meet with students and faculty, tour the campus, and experience Brite Divinity School for yourself.
Leibrock Village has become a hallmark of the Brite experience. Its residents are full-time students who know their neighbors, plan and enjoy social events, take part in study groups, and meet interesting speakers in small, informal group settings. This 56-unit residential community is located a short walk from campus.
Brite offers a strong financial aid program to support students throughout their programs of study. Students may offset the costs of their theological education through scholarships, grants, loans, service to area churches and other resources.
