Theological Studies from University of Redlands is a general academic degree, providing balanced exposure to theological disciplines while allowing for focus on an area of interest.
The M.A.T.S. offers the same breadth as the M.Div., but with greater flexibility. M.A.T.S. students develop a final paper integrating their learning and are not required to complete an internship. The M.A.T.S. may also be pursued part-time, and with the option to study online, on campus, or a combination of the two. It is ideal for those looking to enrich personal or professional development through theological education.

- Are not seeking ordination, but wish to work in a church setting
- Are ordained, but desire further academic work in theological studies
