The Master of Theology (Th.M.) degree is designed for graduates of accredited theological schools who desire to continue or resume their theological education to enhance their professional competence in selected areas of study. It consists of eight elective courses taken over two semesters. During the final semester, students often work directly with a faculty advisor towards completion of a substantial written thesis. The Th.M. program is limited to students who have received the M.Div. (or the equivalent) with superior academic records.
