Embedded Dissertation

At Clamp Divinity School, we transformed the dissertation process from an isolated experience into one of a relationship. Other programs require students to complete their dissertation after they have left the learning environment of the seminary or divinity school. Is it any wonder that most students (56% on average) get to this point and give up? At Clamp Divinity School, we will partner with you during your second year of the program to guide you through the entire process.
