Graduate admissions

Whether you opt to attend the nation’s only Quaker seminary or earn a graduate degree in education in as few as 11 months, your time at Earlham will impact you for life.

Earlham School of Religion

Rooted in the Christian Quaker tradition of contemplation that inspires action, Earlham School of Religion prepares theologically diverse students for a pluralistic world. Our curriculum unites spiritual formation, academic study, social engagement and vital ministry.

In our classrooms, you will find faculty who take seriously the idea of a community of learners and students who bring with them a wealth of wisdom and experience. As an ESR student, you will be challenged to re-evaluate basic assumptions, articulate a theological stance and live into a unique and creative ministry that truly impacts the world.

Graduate Programs in Education

Earlham’s graduate programs develop educators who are leaders in their communities, who model outstanding classroom practices and who prepare their own students to be socially active and morally conscious citizens. The Earlham Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) and Master of Education (M.Ed.) programs are 11-month programs for college graduates who want to pursue careers in education.

Through our 3+1 Education Program, Earlham students are able to obtain a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) and teaching license—all in just nine semesters. You’ll leave Earlham with two degrees, licensed to teach grades 5-12 in Indiana. (And it’s easy to transfer your license to other states—many of our graduates do!)
