“Systematic theology is an inherently interdisciplinary area of study where the resources of Scripture, the Christian tradition, and human reason are brought to bear on life’s most pressing questions. The MA in Systematic Theology at TEDS affords students the opportunity for immersion in these resources with expert guides to help them think through these questions for the advancement of the Gospel.”

“In my very first course with Dr. Luy, he emphasized the importance of listening generously. I now think about that every single day. How we can be generous listeners in conversations with one another and in our engagement with theological texts – searching for the question underneath the question so that we can become better communicators. TEDS taught me how to be an excellent rhetorician and communicator of the Gospel.”
