Residential Master of Theology: Theology
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.): Theology degree deals with critical issues of theological method and content.
Consider critical aspects of Christian doctrine. Explore the existence, nature, and attributes of God. Take a deeper look into biblical doctrines including the Trinity, creation, and eschatology. At Liberty, you’ll study contemporary theological issues as well as issues and questions throughout church history.
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.
