The MA in Theological Studies is an intentionally broad initial degree in theological studies. Combining academic rigor and spiritual depth, and incorporating biblical, theological, historical, global, and practical ministry studies, the MATS equips students for multi-faceted service to Christ and His kingdom. It is also an excellent theological degree that prepares graduates for further theological education through additional degrees at TEDS or other schools. The flexibility inherent in the MATS enables students to tailor their program to meet their personal educational and vocational goals.
