Master of Theology (Th.M)

As an advanced master’s degree, the Master of Theology (Th.M.) at Asbury Theological Seminary forms Christian scholars, teachers, and servant-leaders for the church. Building on the foundation of the Master of Divinity program (or another master’s degree with equivalent work), the degree furthers knowledge in the chosen field of study with opportunities to research areas of one’s interest within the field.

Graduates of the Master of Theology degree will be able to:

1. Exhibit substantive knowledge and understanding of normative literature in the field of study (such as theology, exegesis, and social scientific studies related to the field).

2. Demonstrate advanced or specialized knowledge in either linguistic specialty (biblical and modern research language in biblical studies) or in a chosen area of concentration (in intercultural studies).

3. Demonstrate the ability to do focused research in one’s field of study.

The Office of Advanced Research Programs oversees the administration of the Master of Theology (Th.M.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). Please contact for all Th.M. degree-related matters.
