About DTS-Houston


The DTS-Houston campus was approved as an extension site in 1993. It became a full campus in 2005 after earning accreditation from the Association of Theological Schools to offer the complete Master of Theology (ThM) and Master of Arts in Christian Education (MA/CE) degrees.

The Entire Gospel Story through All 66 Books

DTS affirms that the seminary experience is foundationally a process of spiritual transformation, and at the center of that journey is the triune God and His Word. That’s why every degree program at DTS covers all 66 books of the Bible and devotes an entire semester to studying the Trinity. This means you’ll get more Bible and theology in our 2-year degrees than in most 3-year MDivs and even more in our ThM degree.

A Diverse Community
of Believers

Every year DTS faculty reaffirm a common doctrinal statement, which means students never have to wonder about the perspective of those under whom they are studying. Yet, the student body is a rich mosaic of men and women from over 70 denominations, who benefit from one another’s diverse traditions, ages, ethnicities, and future ministry goals.

Flexible Schedules to
Fit Your Life

With plenty of degree options and flexible course schedules, students are able to continue in the workplace and ministry while taking classes. Because nearly every degree is offered entirely at the Houston campus, there is no need to travel to Dallas. Ranging from the young college graduate to the seasoned pastor, students from all walks of life are able to learn in a dynamic setting.
