Sacred Heart Major Seminary, whose primary campus building in Detroit, Michigan was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982, offers religious and philosophical degree programs at multiple levels (associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s and ecclesiastical) to almost 500 students per year. All programs are driven by a core set of seminary-defined values, including academic excellence, service to others, collaboration and diversity. Exclusively Catholic and fully accredited by the Association of Theological Schools, SHMS coordinates an Institute for Ministry that helps incoming students discern which program is right for them. The seminary’s on-campus resources include the vast Cardinal Szoka Library, complete with collections of audio and video, periodicals and rare books, as well as the Academic Skills Center, which offers tutoring and individual guidance toward improvement in writing, test-taking, and English as a Second Language, where applicable. And for the ultimate faith-based experience, first-year seminarians here partake in the Desert Formation Experience, a thirty-day pilgrimage to the Holy Land, to better understand Christ himself. In these ways and many more, Sacred Heart Major Seminary truly molds regular people into the shepherds of the soul that God called them to be.
