Master of Arts in Theology
In the Master of Arts in Theology (MAT) program, you will have academic training in Christian thought by way of a thorough study of biblical, historical, systematic and spiritual theology. The program focuses on Christian classics, past and present. Studies focus on the Roman Catholic tradition, but also include representative Jewish, Eastern Orthodox and Protestant texts. The program’s concentration on spirituality offers an in-depth examination of the theory and practice of Christian spirituality, past and present.
All Are Welcome
Whatever your reason for pursuing a Master of Arts in Theology, you are welcome in the department. Some students plan to pursue doctoral study but do not yet possess the expertise necessary to enter a doctoral program. Many desire a degree that will equip them for the ministries in the church.
Others already have professional competencies in a field other than theology and wish to acquire theological competence. The MAT program also accommodates individuals whose intention is to pursue a personal, avocational interest in theological studies.
