What is ATS-Memphis?
ATS-Memphis is a partnership between Asbury Theological Seminary and Christ United Methodist Church. Students can pursue classes through cohort model based learning while nurturing a powerful community.
Asbury Theological Seminary is excited about our extension site, ATS-Memphis at Christ United Methodist Church in Memphis, TN*. ATS-Memphis is a micro-expression of the Asbury Theological Seminary experience. This site will aim to answer some questions you may have as you consider enrolling at ATS-Memphis!
ATS-Memphis is an opportunity to begin your theological graduate education in Memphis. Each class meets for two weekends (view schedule ) within a semester and is taught by a local Asbury Theological Seminary faculty member or one who will travel to Memphis to teach the class. Each weekend will feature a special chapel service and students will get to attend New Student Orientation and a spiritual formation retreat at the start of their program. For the Master of Divinity and Master of Arts in Leadership degrees students can complete up to 49% of their degree in Memphis. Master of Divinity students will still be required to complete two additional three hour courses on either the Florida Dunnam campus, located in beautiful sunny Orlando, Florida or on our Wilmore Campus, located in the heart of the Bluegrass, just south of Lexington, KY. Likewise, Master of Arts in Leadership students will have to complete one additional three hour course on either campus. The remaining credits may be earned through classes taught on our Kentucky or Florida Dunnam campuses, or through ExL (Extended Learning), our online learning program.**
**For the Master of Divinity, residential requirements may be met at ATS-Memphis. 27 of the 30 credit hours, or 9 of the 10 classes offered at ATS-Memphis count as residential credit. To fulfill the required 32 hours of residential credit for the Master of Divinity program, students will still be required to complete two three hour courses on either the Kentucky or Florida Dunnam campuses.
