Our curriculum develops skills in cultural and biblical interpretation. Develop a Christian worldview that equips you to engage your culture for the gospel’s sake.
Master of Arts/Theological Studies
Our MA/Theological Studies draws from our curriculum in biblical, theological, historical, and global areas, combined with a substantial number of elective hours that allow each student to uniquely shape his or her coursework. It’s our most flexible program both in focus and delivery. It can be completed in its entirety at our extension sites or online, or in combination with online courses for a hybrid option. You can also complete your degree with summer coursework on our Deerfield campus (as well as in traditional full- and part-time formats on campus). This degree’s particular concern is to relate the broad field of theological studies to the work of the church, and we give our students plenty of opportunities to focus their study on particular interest areas. (Credits: 42 / Length: 2-3 years.)
Master of Arts/Educational Ministries
This flexible degree program is ideal for ministry leaders who want to improve and expand their service in the local church and related educational settings. You may be a teacher or ministry director with a specialty in one area, like youth or family ministries, who seeks additional understanding and skills to serve as a reflective practitioner equipping others. Our program will help you by focusing your coursework on three themes in educational ministry: Congregational Life (family, age-specific and inter-generational ministry), Collaborative Ministry Engagement (leadership, small groups, teams), and Formational Learning (formational discipleship, teaching, and learning). You can take this degree entirely through TEDS Online, in person at Trinity, or through a mixture of both. (Credits: 32 / Length: 1-2 years.)
Master of Arts/Intercultural Studies
This program provides specialized study in the discipline of intercultural studies and Christian mission. The MA/ICS is suitable for persons seeking academic preparation for service as missionaries, cross-cultural workers, teachers, strategists, and researchers. It may also serve as an intermediate step toward doctoral study in a related area.
Our Certificates allow you to choose what master’s-level courses you need in order to strengthen your ministry. You may be a leader who wants to grow in your teaching ability, or at a career transition and wondering about going into ministry. Or you may want to improve at what you’re already doing. Whatever work you’ve been given, our Certificate programs can help you do it better. If you decide you want more education, our certificate program will prepare you well for a Master of Divinity or another master’s degree at Trinity, with part of your coursework already completed. We offer Certificate studies in educational ministries, organizational leadership, teaching and learning, and theological studies. (Credits: 24 / Length: 1-2 years.)

Trinity Law School
Master of Legal Studies (Bioethics)
Over-reaching reproductive technologies, euthanasia, testing on human embryos, insurance regulations that put the patient second — all of these show that the value of human life is being lost on many fronts.

It will prepare you for a profession where real change can take place. (Credits: 30 / Length: 20 months.)
Master of Legal Studies (Human Rights)
Many people want to stand in the gap for those whose human rights are being violated but don’t know how to do it.

(Credits: 30 / Length: 20 months.)
Master of Legal Studies (Non-Profit Organizations)
Whether you work for a non-profit organization or want to start your own, you need to be able to effectively lead your organization in order to further your cause.

(Credits: 30 / Length: 20 months.)
Master of Legal Studies (Church & Ministry Management)
If you lead a church, you know that there are many legal risks involved. Religious freedom issues, property disputes, and employment procedures often challenge churches and it can be hard to know the best way forward. Trinity’s Master of Legal Studies in Church and Ministry Management trains church leaders so that they can protect their members’ rights and preemptively avoid legal attacks. While it doesn’t train you to be an attorney, it does prepare you to use the law to keep the doors open for the gospel. (Credits: 30 / Length: 20 months.)
