School Details

In 1924 a group of students met to study under the noted Bible teacher Dr. Lewis Sperry Chafer. This spiritual meeting and learning experience would later grow to become the Dallas Theological Seminary. In 1935 the Seminary pioneered the four-year Master of Theology (Th.M.) degree. The Th.M. focuses on the same theological courses offered in other three-year programs with an emphasis in systematic theology, Hebrew and Old Testament exegesis, Greek and New Testament exegesis, and Bible exposition. Over the years the seminary grew to incorporate other programs centered on the spiritual world.

There are now Master of Arts degrees and a Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) program to provide pastoral training for students. All programs are intended to prepare students for their future career endeavors—be it teacher, pastor, or other spiritual role, with curricula centered on God and his Word. DTS offers three 100% online programs, two of which are also offered in Chinese. In addition, students can do up to 2/3 of the ministry master’s degrees online in a hybrid format.
