The Master of Theological Studies Modular Program is a foundational program in Christian theology and ministry. Its purpose is to provide understanding in the theological disciplines, integrating intellectual rigor, spiritual formation and ministry development.
The program is organized around a missional understanding of the Church as the people of God, called and sent out into every sphere of society to witness in word and deed to the good news of God’s kingdom.
The MTS modular program makes graduate theological education accessible and manageable for people in the marketplace. Its class schedule is designed to meet the needs of students with demands such as family responsibilities, church commitments and full-time careers. There are 18 courses offered in a modular format consisting of weekly four-hour evening class for five or six weeks, supplemented by approximately 15 hours per week of independent study. This is essentially the same time involvement as a traditionally scheduled program.
Length of program
The program is designed to be completed in just less than three years, including one-week breaks between modules as well as Christmas and summer vacations. All modules are placed in a fixed sequence to facilitate progressive development in theological study. Classes are held on Mondays; a new cohort begins every September.
Learning in community
Students enter this program as a cohort and maintain this group throughout the entire program. This format provides a unique learning community with high personal support and peer interaction. The MTS modular program is well suited to adult learners who desire to take responsibility for their own learning.
Focus on spiritual formation
An ongoing required component of the MTS modular program is personal reflection and small group discussion aimed at integrating academic learning with spiritual growth and ministry development. Students are accountable to their peers in the learning process. Spiritual friends and mentors are a key component in the learning process.
