The MA/TS is our most flexible program both in focus and delivery method. It can be completed in its entirety at our Extension Sites, in combination with online courses, or in summer coursework at the Deerfield campus (as well as in traditional full- or part-time formats). This degree is particularly focused on tying the broad field of theological studies to the work of the church, and students have plenty of opportunities to focus their studies on particular subject areas that interest them.
The flexibility of this program means that your course options will vary widely according to your interests, what’s available at particular Extension Sites, and courses you can take by cross-registering with other seminaries in the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) consortium.
All Master of Divinity students must complete an internship. Field-based ministry experience is vital to the development of MDiv students. Field experiences are mentored experiences between students, faculty and church pastors. Mentoring provides opportunities to invest in the next generation of Christian leaders. Ministries are also enriched by having students serve in a church or parachurch setting.

“The world needs right-minded and right-hearted pastor-theologians and I can't imagine doing anything more important than training students to teach doctrine in ways that make disciples, form citizens of the gospel, and build up local churches. Nor is there anywhere better to do it than TEDS - a veritable microcosm of global evangelism”
