Designed for students who are entering teaching ministries, as well as those who want to pursue an area of particular interest before taking a call.
Master of Arts in Theological Studies (MTS)
The MTS is designed to provide a generalized yet rigorous course of theological studies without research or thesis requirements. You have a discerning and curious mind, interested in the intersection of religion, theology, Christian ethics or spirituality and your current vocation. Or, you may be pursuing lay and ordained ministries in churches or faith communities.
The MTS program is designed to be a two-year, full-time (up to five years part-time) program offering students a broad yet comprehensive education in theological studies across a range of disciplines. Building on a core of foundational courses, the program allows you to focus on and gain competency in more particular areas of interest compatible with the resources of the school. MTS students are encouraged to take full advantage of the Graduate Theological Union’s schools, centers, and institutes during their course of study.
