The curriculum has been designed to fulfill the requirements of the uniform curriculum of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) and has been approved by the Theological Education Committee of the PCA General Assembly. Thus, Master of Divinity graduates of BTS are eligible for ordination in any presbytery of the PCA.
The PCA adopted an internship program which must be completed prior to ordination in addition to the Master of Divinity degree. BTS is structured to accommodate this additional requirement.
Birmingham Theological Seminary is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation, able to grant degrees in the State of Alabama pursuant to Chapter 46 of Title 16 of the Alabama Code.
