JD/Master of Theological Studies

  • The JD/Master of Theological Studies program is tailor-made for those who want to integrate a law degree with a solid spiritual grounding and understanding of religious theology. Capital University Law School joins with Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio to offer the JD/MTS program.

    This combined degree provides the opportunity to explore the rich historical relationships between the theological and legal traditions so deeply embedded in our western culture. The program also prepares graduates to work in a variety of religiously-based settings dealing with church administration and governance matters, public policy involving complicated ethical and social issues, or church foundations helping individuals understand the complexities surrounding planned giving.

    Students in the combined degree program complete both degrees with a substantial reduction in total credit hours.

    Students must apply to and be accepted to each program separately. Learn more about the MTS admission process at Trinity Lutheran Seminary. 

    Students enrolled in the Seminary or the Law School may seek the assistance of the program advisors on both faculties.
