Wartburg Theological Seminary is a Lutheran (ELCA) seminary located in Dubuque, Iowa. It offers three graduate-level degrees (MA, MA Diaconal Ministry, and MDiv), a TEEM (Theological Education for Emerging Ministries) Certificate, and a Diploma in Anglican Studies, all of which are accredited by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) and the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association. Students may also choose to add two concentrations: Youth, Culture, and Mission; and Hispanic Ministry.
All three of Wartburg Theological Seminary’s Masters Degrees offer the option for Distributed Learning Programs, which combine online learning, intensive courses on-campus, and residential formation. Wartburg also offers a Fully Distributed Master of Arts option without a semester-long residency requirement.
Three academic and missional centers are found at Wartburg Theological Seminary, built on their historic strengths: Center for Global Theologies, Center for Theology & Land (rural ministry), and Center for Youth Ministries.
The Lutheran Seminary Program in the Southwest (LSPS) is a program of Wartburg Theological Seminary and the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago. LSPS educates women and men for ordained ministry through TEEM (Theological Education for Emerging Ministry).
Wartburg Theological Seminary also cherishes long-term ties with global partners, including: Haiti, Tanzania, Guyana, Namibia, Papua New Guinea (with the PNG Museum located on campus), and others.
