Master of Theology
The Master of Theology degree is an advanced masters degree program at Brite Divinity School. The 24-hour program leading to this degree is designed to provide students with a more complete mastery of a particular area of theological study than is normally provided at the M.Div. level. Students who enter the program may seek a variety of objectives: to prepare for further graduate study at the doctoral level, to prepare for some forms of teaching (in institutions, public or private, where masters preparation is expected for entry level positions), to use scholarly study to enhance ministerial practice, or to engage in disciplined and critical reflection upon a specialized form of ministry. By the end of the program, students will be expected to demonstrate an advanced understanding of their chosen area of study through the completion of a thesis project.
