Question for Seminarians?
« on: September 12, 2005, 04:03:50 PM »
Do you have a chance in seminary to “specialize” in a subject or is the subjects the same in for all students? Like in normal grad school you can do your thesis in particular areas of your choice. Could a thesis be done on say the Desert Fathers or Syriac Fathers? Thanks!

Sorry if this makes no sense!

Well, there's no "major" or "minor", but your thesis topic can be almost anything you want.  I've skimmed through a variety of them. 
Please don't project meta-debates onto me.
