Master of Theological Studies
This is an academic degree for students who wish to explore theological studies for general educational purposes or personal knowledge. The Master of Theological Studies can also be used as a degree leading to doctoral studies in religious or theological studies (but is not exclusively intended for that purpose). It is not intended for persons wishing to develop professional skills in ministry.
To graduate, students must meet the requirements as specified in the catalog and Master’s Student Handbook of their year of matriculation.
At least 80 quarter credits with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or better are required for the Master of Theological Studies degree.
This degree may be completed in 40 quarter credits if the student has previously completed a MDIV degree or its equivalent from an accredited institution prior to enrollment at Iliff. Specific requirements may be negotiated based on prior educational experience. A minimum grade point average of 2.0 is necessary. Students who average 40 quarter credits a year (13-14 credits each quarter of the academic year) will complete the course work for the Master of Theological Studies degree in two years. Students may, however, elect to complete their course work over a longer period of time.
