Master of Theology
The Master of Theology (Th.M.) is a two-year, advanced research degree, available in a thesis or non-thesis format, that develops students' research skills through in-depth study of a chosen field.
Top scholars from Gateway Seminary and affiliated faculty from around the world teach and mentor students.
Th.M. students are only required to be at the Los Angeles campus one time a semester for an intensive, engaging seminar week.
Diversity in Thought
Gateway is one of the most culturally diverse seminaries in the world, which creates dynamic and thoughtful class experiences.
Areas of Study
A student pursuing a biblical studies concentration will do creative, contemporary research founded on the historical, philosophical, theological and methodological issues of the Old Testament or the New Testament using appropriate research languages extensively.
A student pursuing a theological studies concentration will focus on either historical or systematic theology by studying critical theological works spanning Christian history.
Length of Program
The Th.M. requires 24 hours of course work in seminars and independent studies. Students typically complete the program in 1 1/2 to 2 years.
Both thesis and non-thesis tracks require 24 credit hours to complete. The non-thesis track replaces the thesis with an extra major seminar and a guided research project.
