Master of Sacred Theology

Is an advanced theological degree what your ministry needs to deepen your discipleship and service? A Master of Sacred Theology (STM) enables you to sharpen your knowledge through focused research in seven course units and a concluding thesis.

The Master of Sacred Theology (STM) program provides a fuller mastery of one area or discipline than is normally provided at the basic degree level of theological study. Examples of major areas of study are: Anglican Studies, Bible, Black Church Studies, Christian Education, Church History, Church and Society, Congregational Studies, Homiletics, Interfaith Studies, Liturgy/Worship, Lutheran Studies, Pastoral Care, Theology, and World Christianity .

STM Students Will: 

  •  Develop an advanced understanding of a focused area or discipline in the context of   general theological study. 
  •  Use research methods and resources within the discipline. 
  •  Develop the ability to formulate productive questions. 
  •  Engage in scholarly conversations with their peers. Candidates pursue the degree for a variety of reasons; as a preparation for further study at the Ph.D. level; as a preparation for teaching; for the scholarly enhancement of ministerial practice; or for disciplined reflection on a specialized function of ministry.
