About

In earning a Master of Theological Studies from the Hellenic College Holy Cross, students gain proficiency in Orthodox theology and history. 

Overview

The two-year MTS degree educates students through the study of such disciplines as Church history, dogmatics, ethics, scripture, patristics, and canon law.

Students must also demonstrate competence in New Testament Greek, as they learn to think theologically and critically about the Orthodox Christian tradition in today’s world.

The Theological Studies program from the Hellenic College Holy Cross is designed to offer a general introduction to Greek Orthodox theology through graduate level study. It is a first degree in theology and differs from the Master of Theology (ThM) in that the latter typically requires three years of previous graduate theological education prior to admission. Students may choose to specialize in an area of academic interest by enrolling in elective courses at both Holy Cross and the schools of the Boston Theological Institute.
