Study Leave

Study Leave is a weeklong opportunity for you to engage in self-directed study, renewal and worship life at Luther Seminary.

The Study Leave program is flexible. Attend some classes that look interesting, engage with a seminary professor on a topic of interest, participate in worship and seminary life and make use of the rich resources of the library. Let us know the topic of interest and we'll connect you with possible courses, faculty and library resources to make your week productive. Or if you'd like to come explore, that's fine too. The cost of Study Leave is $250. We can help arrange meals and housing as needed.
