Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg

“Science for Seminaries” will make a basic acquaintance with science a required and expected part of the curriculum at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, PA. Scientific topics will be integrated into required courses in Old Testament, Pastoral Care, and Worship. The relationship of theology and science will also form an intentional, year-long topic of conversation during the 2015-16 year, culminating in a week-long conference, open to the public, featuring major addresses and speakers. Scientific literacy will also be built into the seminary’s developing competency-based curriculum, as that is being constructed over the next two years. Gettysburg Seminary’s partner in this venture is Augustana College, Sioux Falls, SD, which will provide mentoring and expertise from their faculty in the areas of science and medicine.
