Residential Master of Theology: Christian Apologetics

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.): Christian Apologetics degree focuses on the life, teachings, and doctrine of Christ. Enhance your ministry training by studying apologetics. Dive deeper into the Scripture as you study biblical truths. Practice critical debate and learn how to defend your faith with acuity. 

With critical studies in apologetics, you’ll develop the skills you need to engage in the current cultural discussions from a Christian perspective.  

Thesis or Non-Thesis?

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.
