With the permission of the Faculty Senate, and his ecclesiastical or religious superior, an exceptional student may be allowed to earn a Master of Arts degree in theology, in conjunction with the M.Div. degree.
The Master of Arts degree in Theology requires 36 semester hours of graduate coursework beyond the M.Div. requirements. A student who plans to pursue more advanced graduate work in the future may elect to write a Master’s Thesis. The Master’s Thesis may be done for program credit. All students must complete four core courses and complete a summative evaluation.
The degree concentration may be in one of the following areas: Dogmatic Theology, General Studies, Moral Theology, or Sacred Scripture.
Students in the Seminary Program should consult the Academic Calendar for registration dates.
