SCPS announces partnership with Lancaster Theological Seminary

The School of Continuing and Professional Studies is pleased to announce a partnership with Lancaster Theological Seminary (LTS) to offer an exclusive accelerated admission process for current Elizabethtown SCPS students and alumni who are interested in pursuing a Master of Divinity. There are specific courses required through Elizabethtown that you must fulfill and meeting with LTS admissions personnel is also required to enter the MDiv program. Current students, if you have questions or if you would like more information contact your academic advisor. Alumni, please contact Terry Singer at or 717-358-4645.

“Elizabethtown and Lancaster Theological Seminary are dedicated to advancing adult education, community enhancement, and service,” said Barbara Randazzo, Dean of the SCPS.  “Student commitment to continuing education in areas such as counseling, spiritual formation, religion, ministry, and more is an extension of a life of service. This partnership enriches higher-educational offerings in Lancaster communities and beyond.”  

Lancaster Seminary’s new Master of Divinity program – open to students of any denomination – features two convenient ways to earn the advanced degree: a weekday program with classes held Tuesdays through Friday mornings, and a weekend program with classes held Friday evenings and Saturday mornings.

According to Dr. David Mellott, Lancaster Theological Seminary dean and vice president of academic affairs, “Our exciting agreement with Elizabethtown College creates another path by which people can respond to their call to ministry, and prepares them well for graduate theological studies and their future life of service whether in lay or ordained ministry.”

Lancaster Theological Seminary, a graduate school of theology affiliated with the United Church of Christ, is a vibrant, diverse learning community known for academic excellence, celebration of differences across Christian traditions, and creative engagement on issues of importance to our world. We educate and nurture leaders to join in God's redemptive and liberating work so that all creation may flourish.
