• New York Theological Seminary has always been committed to making its programs and degrees as accessible as possible.   NYTS uses MOODLE (an acronym for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment).  As an interactive website with features and activities designed to engage learners and promote collaborative learning, All learning at NYTS is supported by MOODLE.  Here you will find student announcements, news about community life, and the resources you need for successfully completing all classes and degrees.  Once inside your own page (protected by your password) you will find every course being offered in every semester or intensive period is listed, and a number of additional helpful resources you might need.  

    Current Students: if you have MOODLE questions, please contact HelpDesk at helpdesk@mail.nyts.edu. In the email, include your name, your student identification number, your program affiliation (CP, MDiv, MAPCC, MAYM, MARLA or DMin) and the issue you are having with MOODLE.

  • NYTS Writing Center

         The Writing Center will be available this semester on Wednesdays and Thursdays, noon-6 PM. The Writing Center is located at 475 Broadway (the InterChurch Center), Suite 500. Please ask the NYTS switchboard to announce you when you arrive. The Writing Center will be available until the end of the semester.
         Please email Audrey Raden at writingcenternyts@gmail.com to secure an appointment. If you come in before 4:30 PM, you could also try a walk-in, and Audrey will see you on a first come, first served basis. However, you must make an appointment if you are coming in after 4:30 PM so Audrey can give your name to the security desk of the building.
         Audrey can help you with editing, proofreading, citations, and understanding difficult material. But she can't write your paper for you!
         Please bring a hard copy of your paper, for the Writer Center does not have a printer.
