Statement of Educational Effectiveness
Mount St. Mary’s Seminary & School of Theology, the center for ecclesial formation sponsored by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati, forms men and women to faithfully follow Christ and serve His mission by fulfilling their vocations in the Church.
The institution achieves this mission through five graduate degree programs, as well as several non-accredited certificates. Mount St. Mary’s Seminary & School of Theology (MTSM) defines clear goals and academic outcomes for each of the following degree programs:
- Master of Divinity (MDiv)
- Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministry (MAPM)
- Master of Arts in Biblical Studies (MAB)
- Master of Arts in Catholic Studies (MACS)
- Master of Arts in Theology (MAT)
Achievement of each of these outcomes is regularly assessed using multiple strategies that include both direct and indirect measures of student learning. Additional information about the institution’s educational effectiveness is provided below:
The work of MTSM graduates includes the full range of ministry to the Body of Christ, including priests, permanent deacons, lay ecclesial ministers, diocesan officials, teachers, directors of religious education, chaplains, volunteers, and more.
