Dallas Theological Seminary Graduate Reviews

Overall, my experience there has been very positive. If they’re encouraging people to pursue a ThM (especially people of color), they should also provide them with adequate avenues and job opportunities so that students aren’t stuck with tens of thousands of dollars in debt and no job prospects post-graduation. Additionally, it would behoove them to contract more professors of color and encourage further exploration of scholars of color. The professors they have there are some of the best in their field. Not only that, professors truly care about their students. They are true examples of servant-leaders. Professional development for professors in the realm of teaching would greatly improve classroom engagement. DTS provided a safe space for me to wrestle with my beliefs and establish a firm foundation on the Word, which is something for which I will be forever grateful.

The academics are rigirous and have exceptional real-world applications for ministry. The pacing suggested for students is unrealistic and unhelpful. The catalogue suggests course completion and program completion for all students as if they had their school paid for and could be full time students as well. But this is now the exception, and should no longer be the rule. The majority of students are working part time to pay for grad school, and many are in ministry as well. Encouraged student pacing ought to be changed to reflect this so that less students will burn out or graduate with stress and resentment.
I'd like to see greater inclusion of women in the preaching department and chapels. Allowing female students to participate in student preaching week in the Spring. Having said that, the confidence in female students theological and academic capabilities as expressed by faculty is outstanding. We just need to see an increase in the inclusion of female voices, not simply in chapels but at all levels of leadership.
