The Master of Theology degree is designed for those who have already completed a graduate theological degree and want to deepen their knowledge and mastery of a specific area of biblical or theological studies. Areas of specialization include Apologetics, Church History, New Testament, Old Testament, Septuagint Studies or Theology.
The program is ideal for those whose sense of vocation includes teaching and scholarship, for those planning to go on to doctoral studies, and for those interested in acquiring advanced training and knowledge in a specialized area to enhance church-based ministries or to enrich a teaching role.
*The Master of Theology contains 30 credit hours and can be done in one year of full time study, or over several years of part-time study. This degree is granted conjointly by Trinity Western University and the seminary in which the student is enrolled.

Five elective courses in your area of specialization:
Apologetics establishes a rational reasoned defense of the Christian faith, as well as engaging current social issues and the truth claims of other faiths.
Biblical Studies will provide you with a strong foundation for ministry and personal faith by refining your knowledge of the Scriptures.
Church history examines what Christians at different times and in different places around the world believed about God, the Gospel and the Christian life, so that we can live in faithful obedience to the gospel today.
The Septuagint is the earliest Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible and the first major work of religious translation in history. It provides unique insight into the world in which Jesus lived and in which the early church grew.
Theology is what Christians believe about God, salvation and the nature of reality, which makes every Christian a theologian. By engaging with current and historical theological issues, you will see more clearly how your beliefs impact both your day-to-day life and the major social and cultural issues in the world today.
