M.A. Theological Studies
The M.A. Theological Studies is a research-based 52-credit degree program offering students a solid foundation in biblical studies, church history, theology, and personal and spiritual formation. Because of its breadth and focus it is particularly beneficial for lay persons. Traditionally, it is the degree preferred by those going on to Ph.D. studies or a teaching profession and can include a biblical studies focus. A capstone research project is required of all those enrolling in this degree program or a thesis option is available with faculty approval.
Students meet on a one-night-per-week schedule over three years to complete the required courses and field education requirements. Northeastern also offers an accelerated program for students interested in completing their degree in two years.
Elective Course Opportunities
Northeastern students may take elective courses to enhance their M.A. in Theological Studies from Roberts Wesleyan College masters programs in Counseling, Psychology, Education, Management, and Music on a space available basis, if prerequisites are met. Contact an admissions counselor for more information on these elective options.
