Master of Theological Studies
Eastern University

Program Details

Eastern University offers an online Openseminary Master of Theological Studies. The Openseminary methodology focuses on a learning approach to theological knowledge based on issues and questions faced in contemporary lifestyles, in order to provide applicable context.  The curriculum is committed to sourcing appropriate theological responses from Scripture and Christian Tradition but trains students to think theologically by starting with the emerging questions of their context.  This method strengthens churches by increasing the theological knowledge and ministry effectiveness of men and women, including laypersons, who are, or have been, active in ministry.  The program is designed to accommodate busy pastors and leaders with a flexible schedule and affordability that allows students from around the world to earn a degree in three years without relocating.
