Pursuing A Graduate Theological Degree At Drew? While the first phase of Launch focuses on the undergraduate experience, the good news is that many of the benefits of Launch are available to you, right now, right here, on Launchpad. A second phase of the LAUNCH design will introduce components focused more directly on Theological School students.

Explore powerful opportunities to advance your own academic goals, professional development and vocational pathways through the Launchpad site. Students in master’s and doctoral programs at the Theological School may be particularly interested in:

The Career Communities pages are hubs for expanding your networks and connecting with mentors, events, resources and opportunities in 10 broad career areas, including one called Theology, Religion and Ministry where you can find professional information and job postings.

The Identity/Affinity Communities pages offer curated spaces where people on shared experiences and pathways can create networks of support and opportunity.  The Faith, Religion & Spirituality Affinity group may be one that would interest you, but there are also groups related to other identity indicators that you would be interested in joining.

The Mentors page provides a clearinghouse for expanding your personal and professional networks by finding—or becoming!—a mentor.

The Full-Time and Part-Time Jobs & Employers page and Launchpad are great resources for job searches and research on possible vocational pathways and/or teaching and ministry opportunities.
