Union Theological Seminary, Myanmar
Union Theological Seminary in New York has awarded degrees to 104 students, its largest graduating class since 1992. Included were 59 students who received Master of Divinity degrees. “Slightly more than a third of the students are going into some type of church-related work, ranging from pastoral services to chaplaincies,” said a Union news release. Thirty percent planned to work toward other degrees. The 172nd commencement was the last during the nine-year presidency of Joseph C. Hough Jr., who is retiring July 1. Hough is credited with leading the ecumenical seminary out of deep financial problems and bolstering its academic strength.
