Take Your Religious Studies Further with a Postgraduate Degree from Liberty
Once you complete your Master of Divinity (M.Div.), what’s next? Do you aspire to continue your education and prepare for potential doctoral studies? If you are looking for a way to do so without committing to a full doctorate program right away, we have an option for you.
At Liberty, we offer postgraduate divinity degrees to bolster the knowledge you gained from your divinity master’s degree while equipping you for future doctoral studies. Our School of Divinity’s postgraduate degrees are centered on evangelical theology. From this foundation, you can personalize your degree to best fit your ministry goals. For example, if you are looking to become a seminary professor in the specific subject of apologetics, our Master of Theology in Christian Apologetics with a thesis track would be a great way to reach that goal.
In addition to Christian apologetics, our postgraduate degree in theology offers specializations in biblical studies, church history, global studies, homiletics, and theology. Each of these specializations provides a choice for either a thesis or a non-thesis track. If you are looking to pursue doctoral studies and a career in higher education, a thesis track could be a great option for you.
Doctorate degrees in ministry, theology, or apologetics can present an extremely competitive entry process. Do what you can now to stand out to universities and churches alike with a postgraduate degree from Liberty. There’s no reason to put it off; your next step is here. Are you ready?
