Trends in Theological Education — How are Seminaries Faring?

At the same time that the poor economy has hurt endowment funds and dramatically reduced donations to traditional schools of religion, online education is a growing phenomenon, the number of seminaries is actually increasing, and some megachurches are training their own leaders.

While traditional seminaries are closing or downsizing, new seminaries focus on training ministers in a particular way, raising questions about the value and purpose of theological education, and what is gained and lost for students as education delivery methods change.

ReligionLink, a sister site of the Religion Newswriters Association, an organization dedicated to improving the quality of religious news reporting, has published a resource page offering background, articles and scholars and experts who can speak on the trends in theological education. You can also access a wide range of research material on faith issues from ReligionLink’s main page.
