Asbury Theological Seminary’s 60-hour Theological Studies - Spiritual Formation applies Christian theology to contemporary issues, life and ministry through your study of church history, doctrine, ethics, philosophy and systematic theology. 


Equip yourself to answer your call to ministry wherever God calls you through a focused study of scripture, theology, history and spiritual practices within the Wesleyan tradition. As you study the classical texts from the early Church to the present, you’ll not only be grounded in the historic content of the Gospel, but also learn how to integrate your theology into your daily life.

This Theological Studies - Spiritual Formation degree at Asbury Theological Seminary prepares you in the practical Christian disciplines needed for teaching in congregations, para-church organizations, Christian institutions or for pursuing a postgraduate degree.

Upon completing your degree you’ll demonstrate a fresh understanding of the essential content, historical development and philosophical and ethical dimensions of Christian theology. Your theological degree won’t be theory only. You’ll be able to apply those concepts to contemporary issues in Christian life and ministry.

As you complete your degree, you’ll be able to

  • Cultivate holy love of God and neighbor through both knowledge and practice in the Christian disciplines of service and grace.
  • Understand the essential content, historical development, and philosophical and ethical dimensions of Christian theology.
