The master of theology (ThM) with a concentration in Old Testament is perfect for students who have just completed an MDiv or MA, for those who have practical ministry or teaching experience and wish to return to seminary to add on to their master’s training, or to develop a specialization in Old Testament.
The ThM with a concentration in Old Testament is designed to provide advanced seminars in the history of ancient Israel, exegesis in eighth-century prophets, and ancient Near Eastern languages related to the Old Testament. Additionally, the ThM degree is excellent preparation for doctoral studies or for those desiring to write for publication.
