Have you completed an M.Div. or an M.A. degree and are looking for a post-graduate research degree perhaps as a stepping stone to doctoral work? Do you not want to move from where you are at? Then look no further than Toronto Baptist Seminary and Bible College. TBS offers the one year Master of Theology degree (Th.M.) off-site.

The following material is taken right from the TBS website and from the TBS Prospectus. Consider it! In a world with increased creative doctrinal teachings and such, it is important for those in the ministry to consider further academic studies.

 

Master of Theology

This research degree is ideal for those who have taken a Master of Theological Studies or a Master of Divinity (without a thesis) and thus this degree can serve as a stepping-stone to a doctoral degree or be a terminal research degree. Entrance into the degree is dependent on an overall B+ average or higher in the preceding degree.

Currently offered in New Testament Studies, Christian Thought, and Baptist Studies.

Co-Requisite:

Depending on the area of study, demonstrated reading ability in a modern language (Theological German, Theological French, or Theological Dutch) and an ancient language (Greek, Hebrew, or Latin).
