From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The New York Theological Seminary (NYTS) was established as a non-denominational institution in 1900 with the founding of the Bible Teachers’ College in Montclair, New Jersey by Wilbert Webster White. President White moved the school to New York City in 1902, when it was renamed the Bible Teachers’ Training School. In 1921 the corporate name was changed to The Biblical Seminary in New York, and then in 1966 to New York Theological Seminary. In 2002 the seminary moved to the Morningside Heights neighborhood of Manhattan, with offices in the Interchurch Center and classrooms in the Riverside Church and the Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York. The Rev. Dr. Dale T. Irvin, an ordained minister in the American Baptist Churches, was appointed President of the seminary in 2005. He also serves as Professor of World Christianity.

Educational programs

NYTS is fully accredited by New York State and the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada. NYTS currently offers three degree programs: Master of Professional Studies, Master of Divinity, and Doctor of Ministry. NYTS also offers a non-accredited Certificate in Christian Ministry and a residential program located inside Sing Sing Correctional Facility, where every year 15 inmates from throughout the New York State prison system are transferred to complete a one-year intensive Master of Professional Studies degree.
