Today VTS is hosting its first-ever virtual Fall Visit Day for prospective master’s-level students! The event will provide an opportunity for applicants to hear directly from faculty and current students about what makes VTS unique and what they can expect from their Seminary experience here. We will be recording each portion of the event so that future applicants can easily access sessions on our website throughout the academic year. Given that the pandemic is preventing us from offering on-campus visits at this time, these recordings will be especially helpful to prospective students as they seek to learn more about the Seminary.
The schedule is as follows: 8:15 a.m. – Morning Prayer (liturgy created by our Contemplative Morning Prayer worship team) 11:00 a.m. – Dean’s Welcome (The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D.)
11:10 a.m. – Academics at VTS (The Rev. Melody Knowles, Ph.D.)
