OUR C:TM FACULTY
For more than 200 years, Princeton Theological Seminary has been a leader in theological scholarship because of its preeminent biblical scholars and theologians. With C:TM + ONLINE, we open the doors of our classrooms to the world.
Course of Study
The C:TM + ONLINE 14-week course of study is designed to develop deeper critical engagement with Christian theology and foster rich and imaginative applications to your lives and context. You begin by re-examining the Old and New Testament and discussing with your peers and professors its implications for modern life. The first two courses are followed by a midterm. You will then apply those biblical insights to theological underpinnings of the Christian faith and their implications for pluricentric contemporary world Christianity.
