Master of Arts Theological Studies, MA(TS)

The Master of Arts (Theological Studies), the MA(TS), provides a broad background in theological study while allowing a specific concentration in a discipline or field of one’s interest. The student decides on the concentration in consultation with the advisor; together they draw up a curriculum plan and file it in the registrar’s office during the student’s first year.

This degree offers particular opportunities for multidisciplinary studies and students may craft it to suit their individual interests. Several concentrations are possible, including Pastoral Care and Pastoral Theology, Interfaith Studies, Bible, Ethics, and Ministerial Leadership.

The goals of this degree include:

  • Theological education to explore spiritual, vocational, or religious issues for personal or professional enrichment.
  • Preparation for ministries within or related to churches that do not require practical specialization or ordination.

Please refer to the Andover Newton Catalogue for a comprehensive description of the MA(TS) requirements.
