(Professional degrees only)
Following an extensive study of the purpose and function of the Exit Project for professional degrees, the Graduate Theological Foundation has put in place a Non-Project Option (NPO) which works to the advantage of all students, taking into consideration both the professional and personal needs and interests of each student.
The administration of the GTF believes that for those students who have an interest in and capacity for developing a comprehensive writing project, the Exit Project serves a very good purpose. However, for students who prefer more content instruction and less emphasis upon project development, the Non-Project Option (NPO) serves their professional interests as well.
This option requires students in professional degree programs (with the exception Sacred Music students) to attend one GTF Institute
and submit the required response papers in lieu of writing the Exit Project.
