Go on to get your Ph.D. with Liberty’s Master of Theology (Th.M.) program. Or, strengthen your expertise in your field.
The Master of Theology (Th.M.): Biblical Studies degree focuses on critical interpretation of Scripture. Get a firm scriptural foundation as you prepare for a career in ministry. Explore the Old and New Testaments as you study the genres, parables, and themes of each biblical book. With courses in biblical languages, you’ll study texts in the original Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic.
The decision between a thesis track and a non-thesis track generally revolves around your interest in future Ph.D. work. Many credible Ph.D. programs will not accept a student who has not already completed a thesis. Students not interested in a future Ph.D. have the option of choosing the non-thesis track. The non-thesis option provides a Capstone research project that allows you to do an advanced research project in your chosen field of study.
