Distance Education

THM

Online Master of Theology (ThM)

The online Master of Theology (ThM) is a 24-unit program of advanced theological studies (including a thesis) designed primarily for students who already hold a Master of Divinity degree. The ThM program is particularly designed for those who desire to enhance a scholarly dimension in their priestly or ministerial vocations and is especially appropriate for those preparing to teach at the parish level (e.g., priest’s pastoral assistant, Bible study / Sunday school programs), those interested in furthering their theological knowledge and spiritual life, and those intending to pursue doctoral work.

THM

Online Master of Theological Studies (MTS)

The MTS program is designed to offer a general introduction to Orthodox theology through customizable graduate-level study. Students seeking graduate study in theology often move on to doctoral studies, are deacons or monastics seeking additional theological education, or are lay leaders desiring to serve their parishes by deepening their understanding of the Orthodox faith.
