Houses of Study

The student body has long included men and women from a variety of traditions. In an effort to smooth the path to ordination for these students, Sioux Falls Seminary has committed to a "house of study" approach. This concept is a program of student services which offers enhanced support to students and provides a mechanism for communication with their denominational bodies concerning courses and requirements. Currently, there are active houses of study for Lutheran and United Methodist students.
