Students in the Theology program of the Union Presbyterian Seminary often focus on a burning question. With passion for a topic, they utilize courses, directed studies, and a thesis or summative project to engage this question vigorously.


Program Features

For some, the question seeks depth within a particular field of study. For others, the question calls for focus that is interdisciplinary.

The Theology program of the Union Presbyterian Seminary offers an additional year of academic preparation beyond the Master of Divinity degree, the Master of Arts in Christian Education, or a master’s degree in an area of theological study. It prepares graduates for leadership in various ministries in the church and world and further graduate work.

Programme Structure

  • All Th.M. students will successfully complete at least 24 semester hours, including a Th.M. thesis or summative project, and an oral exam based on their thesis or their summative project. Some Th.M. students may choose to concentrate their studies in a particular field (e.g., New Testament, American Christianity), while others may draw upon the resources of various departments.
