Distance Education

THM

Online Master of Theology (ThM)

The online Master of Theology (ThM) is a 24-unit program of advanced theological studies (including a thesis) designed primarily for students who already hold a Master of Divinity degree. The ThM program is particularly designed for those who desire to enhance a scholarly dimension in their priestly or ministerial vocations and is especially appropriate for those preparing to teach at the parish level (e.g., priest’s pastoral assistant, Bible study / Sunday school programs), those interested in furthering their theological knowledge and spiritual life, and those intending to pursue doctoral work.
