Master of Theology

Program Details

Campbellsville University offers a Master of Theology program online. The program is designed to prepare Christian ministers for effective service through the church for the world through theological and ministerial training. Students gain skills that will teach them to be passionately evangelical, rooted in the biblical story, church-connected, servant leaders, spiritual entrepreneurs, and partners in an enduring fellowship.  There are three areas of emphasis available for this degree:  biblical studies, pastoral leadership, and theology.  Biblical Studies explores the history and interpretation of the Bible; Pastoral Leadership explores the ministry of proclamation and worship, pastoral ministries, evangelism, and leadership development while helping you learn to accomplish things within a church or ministry setting; and Theological Studies is a combination of church history and contemporary theological discussion.
