    Yes! You will be able to download the syllabus and all relevant course files no later than the first day of class.

  • What is the cost for alumni?

    As with all our classes, there is no charge for auditing the class if you have previously graduated from TMS.

  • I am a TMS alumnus, can I bring elders or other people from my church to attend with me?

    Because our classroom capacity is limited, and in order to preserve the teacher-student classroom dynamic, the in-person class seating is limited to TMS students and alumni.

Since 1990 The Master's Seminary has offered a special course in the "winterim" period between the Fall and Spring semesters. Entitled the Distinguished Scholars Lecture Series, the seminary invites outstanding evangelical scholars from the areas of New Testament, Old Testament, Theology, and Bible Exposition to lecture on specialized topics in their area of expertise. The classes are open to current students and graduates and offer two units of academic credit.

The Winterim series is open to all TMS students, and, as always, TMS graduates may take advantage of this exciting opportunity tuition-free. Contact Dana Waller at the seminary (dwaller@tms.edu, or 818-909-5642) for more information.
