Degree Emphases with the University of Kentucky
LTS has enjoyed a close relationship with the University of Kentucky since the founding of both schools. Located across Limestone Street from the main UK campus, the Seminary has close relationships with the UK Library, UK Medical Center, and the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging.
Clinical Pastoral Education
Advanced work in Clinical Pastoral Education is available at the University of Kentucky’s A. B. Chandler Medical Center. This work leads to greater expertise in counseling and may qualify as credit toward certification as a chaplain by the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education.
Certificate in Gerontology
The Sanders-Brown Center on Aging offers a Graduate Certificate in Gerontology program. The program requires 12 hours of classroom work and a field experience for which three hours of credit are earned. Lexington Theological Seminary will accept the 15 hours of work for transfer into the Master of Arts or Master of Divinity degree programs. The LTS Director of Field Education will work with the academic advisor at the University of Kentucky in an effort for the UK field education to count as one semester of field education at LTS for MDiv students.
