Master of Theology
The Master of Theology (M.Th.) program is a 39-hour program of graduate theological and ministerial training that provides an 18-hour emphasis in one of four areas (Pastoral Ministries, Biblical Studies, Educational Ministries, or Theological Studies) and prepares the Christian minister for effective kingdom service through the church for the world.
M.Th. applicants who lack the 18-hour prerequisite of undergraduate Christian Studies can meet this requirement by taking these courses entirely online through the School of Theology's undergraduate program.
