Master of Theological Studies

What is the Master of Theological Studies degree?

The Master of Theological Studies (MTS) degree is designed for students who wish to obtain a general theological education. The course of study is not designed to provide the qualifications for ordained ministry. This program is accredited by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS).

The MTS is designed to be completed in four to five years part time or two to three years full time. Courses are scheduled so that students who are working full time may pursue their studies without compromising their employment and family life.
