This week: The MTS and ThM Degree Programs: What Are They, and Why Apply?

Each year, PTS welcomes students from across the world into the Master of Theological Studies (MTS) and Master of Theology (ThM) degree programs. The recently modified MTS is a flexible two-year program, and the ThM is an advanced master’s degree intended for students who wish to improve or deepen their preparation for ministry beyond their MDiv or MTS. While each of these academic degrees offers unique opportunities, both are designed to equip students for a doctoral level program, teaching positions, or various forms of specialized ministry. Students will specialize in one particular area of theological scholarship: Biblical Studies, History and Ecumenics, Practical Theology, Religion and Society, or Theology. Additionally, graduates will have the opportunity to conduct advanced research and deepen their spiritual foundations and practices to support a lifetime of learning and service.

Join us for a conversation with Dr. Rose Ellen Dunn, who serves as the Associate Dean for Academic Administration and oversees the MTS and ThM degree programs. During this event, we will discuss curriculum requirements, the application process, and what you can expect after graduating from these programs. We hope to see you there!


There is no cost for this event but registration is required.
