The School of Theology and Religious Studies has demonstrated effectiveness in helping students attain their educational goals by a very reasonable time-to-degree completion rate and a high placement rate within their first year. Of Ph.D. students matriculating between 2009 and 2013 who earned their doctorate, 87% did so within 7 years.  Of PhD graduates 2008-2018, 70% are in full-time academic or ecclesial positions.  The employment rate for those in the positions directly related to the pastoral degrees they received is 100%.  All seminarians completing our three-degree options (STB, MDIV, STB/MDIV) are now priests and ministers in their dioceses/provinces. All Doctor of Ministry (DMIN) graduates are in full-time ministry after graduation. Students in all five-degree programs who finished their degree did so within the specified time frame.
