September 14, 2020 – September 14, 2022
Offered by Vancouver School Of Theology
VST is called to educate and form thoughtful, engaged and generous Christian leaders for the church and the world in the 21st century.
The Master of Theology degree is a post-graduate degree designed to provide the student with an advanced understanding of one area or discipline within the general context of theological study, and the development of research methods and resources appropriate to the area or discipline chosen.
The program may serve to prepare a student for further graduate study at the doctoral level, preparation for some forms of teaching, the scholarly enhancement of ministerial practice, or disciplined focus in an area of theological study for personal interest. Two streams of study are available: One option requires the writing of a scholarly thesis; this is the option generally recommended for those preparing for doctoral work. The other option, the General Research Option, requires additional course work and a significant project. The program requires specialization in the area of study in which the thesis is written but allows for diversity in the selection of courses. It is offered in any field in which a student’s interests and the School’s resources coincide.
This is a 24 credit-hour program. It is primarily a residential degree with courses offered on the campus of VST. A limited number of requirements may be completed through distance format.
For advanced VST master’s degrees, a master’s in Theological Studies is required as a pre-requisite. There are two application deadlines per year: March 15th and October 15th. Students can begin their studies in September or January. To learn more about tuition and fees visit: https://vst.edu/students/tuition-fees/
