Fall 2019 Admissions

PTS is currently accepting applications for the Fall 2019 cohort of the Master's Program in Transcendent Leadership, which begins with a six-day orientation in Santa Monica California in August 2019. Applicants will hear back from the admission committee within two weeks of being told your submitted application is complete.


Application for Admission

The Transcendent Leadership application process requires you to provide information about your readiness to begin the program. The information you enter will be saved as you enter it. This allows you to complete the application at any time by clicking on the link that will be emailed to you. 

In addition to completing the application form with your personal information, you will be asked to upload three short written components as PDF or Word files: [1] a résumé (or list) that documents your educational and professional history; [2] a personal statement of intention; and [3] a sample of your reflective writing. If you intend to complete the program for the Master of Spiritual Science degree, you must also have official transcripts of your bachelor's degree submitted directly to PTS. 

You may wish to prepare these items before beginning the application.

Remember, if you start to fill out the application and realize you need more time or need to gather more information, you will be able to save an in-progress application and return to it before submitting. 

Thank you for your interest in the MSS in Transcendent Leadership offered by Peace Theological Seminary & College of Philosophy.

Truly about living the abundance of Soul Transcendence in my everyday life, I am profoundly grateful for having chosen this program.

True leadership consists first and foremost in being led. This conception involves a profound paradox. True leaders are not in an important sense initiators; rather, they are chiefly responders to the divine will. This means that the chief determinant of authentic leadership is not human talent, but availability to the Divine. The only authentic leadership is fellowship with the Divine. When leadership ceases to be Spirit-led, it ceases to be authentic.
