The master of theology (ThM) with a concentration in theology blends foundations of biblical, theological, and practical ministry training and gives students opportunities to broaden and deepen their understanding of Christian theology. You’ll learn to think theologically about all of life and effectively grapple with theological issues and trends in the contemporary church. You’ll study the articulation, interpretations, and practices related to expressing one’s faith through creeds and confessions. You’ll examine the key doctrines and systems of the Christian faith, including Trinitarian theology, its proponents, models, and application for church ministry. Great emphasis will be placed on student research and writing, so this ThM degree is excellent preparation for doctoral studies or for those desiring to write for publication.
