Dear Incoming Students:
Congratulations on your acceptance to Princeton Seminary! We look forward to meeting you when you arrive on campus.
Fall Registration and Information
I know many of you are anxious about your preparations for the Fall Semester. Please know that registration materials, complete with video clips and documents regarding requirements for your degree programs will be coming your way in the late spring/early summer. Online registration for entering students, who have completed required admission steps, will open on July 10. If you have particular questions or concerns, would you please hold off on sending emails until you have had a chance to receive and review the registration materials. These materials will answer many of your questions or concerns.
Summer Language – Hebrew and Greek
Incoming MDiv and Dual students are encouraged to consider joining us this summer for summer language! Although Greek and Hebrew are not required for the M.Div. degree, many denominations require Greek and/or Hebrew for ordination and our Faculty encourage M.Div. students to study the Bible using a language. If you are in the PCUSA, you should seriously consider taking Greek or Hebrew this coming summer. Please talk with your CPM liaison about the language and exegesis requirements.
Should I or should I not consider taking Summer Language?
Summer languages and all language study at the Seminary count as elective credits. Most entering students who choose to take a summer language prior to the Fall Semester, enroll in Greek, but you may certainly take Hebrew first, if you so choose. In the Fall Semester, you will follow your summer language study with a Fall Semester exegesis course using your new language. The fall Hebrew and Greek exegesis courses are offered for entering students who have not yet completed the required introductory Old Testament course, OT2101, or the introductory New Testament course, NT2101. The summer language course is 6 credits, a full year of study in the span of 8 weeks. It is intense. You should not plan on working alongside a summer language course. If you are not good at languages, you may wish to consider taking your language during the fall and spring semesters. If you are good at languages, taking it in an intense study manner, may work well for you.
