3. How do I qualify for advanced placement in Greek and/or Hebrew?
4. How do I select my major electives and thesis?
STM students should select their major elective courses in conversation with their major department. Professors in each academic department are best equipped to advise students regarding courses geared toward each student’s desired ministry context. Please contact the Administrative Coordinator for your major department to request a meeting with a professor.
Thesis subject selection should also take place in conversation with a student’s major department. Students should confer with their major department regarding thesis topic approval deadlines, and should select their thesis topic during their first semester at DTS.
