The MTS degree in Theological Studies at Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary is planned for those men and women who desire personal and/or vocational enrichment and training through theological education leading to a graduate degree.


About this Degree

A candidate for the MTS in Theological Studies degree at Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary is required to take 90 credits. Each student will take a sequence of core courses from each of the four departments of the Seminary and prepare an Integrative Research Project near the end of the MTS. Additionally, each student in this degree program must choose between Biblical Studies, Doctrinal and Historical Studies, or Biblical Counseling as an area of concentration and take the prescribed number of credits in that chosen area. Elective courses of special interest to the individual student will be taken to complete the 90 credits required for graduation. 

Completion of the course of study ordinarily requires at least two academic years. With the exception of one one-week intensive course, the MTS degree (Biblical Studies and Doctrinal and Historical Studies concentrations only) may be fully earned through distance learning courses. Beyond the one required intensive, students who desire to complete these concentrations through distance learning should work with their advisor on substitute courses for any other classes not available online.
