MASTER'S PROGRAMS » Master of Theology


The Master of Theology program at Baptist Bible Seminary prepares men for pastoral leadership and academic research through deep and practical study. The 32-credit hour Th.M. is built on the learning and experience of the M.Div. and allows students to develop a greater proficiency in a selected area of Bible knowledge.

The Th.M. courses parallel the foundational work in the first half of the Doctor of Philosophy program. A student holding the Th.M. degree may go on to complete the remaining credits for the Doctor of Philosophy. Having already written the master's thesis, the doctoral dissertation must also be completed for the Ph.D.

You will leave BBS with:

  • Efficiency in studying and researching the Scriptures.
  • Superior skills for theological and biblical language research.
  • A heart for God and a passion for teaching his people.

The Th.M. is a non-resident program offered in a combination of online and on-campus formats. Learn more about program delivery here.
