Comparing a Traditional MDiv to a DTS ThM

ThM MDiv Chart 01

The DTS Master of Theology (ThM) offers a unique 4-year curriculum that takes ministry training of a traditional 3-year MDiv and infuses it with additional depth in Greek, Hebrew, and your chosen area of study.


The Master of Theology (ThM) program is composed of 120 credit hours, 91 of which are predetermined in the curriculum, with the remaining 29 credit hours devoted to a ministry emphasis based on vocational intent and interests.

*Students must complete at least 9 of their elective hours in the Division of Ministries and Communication.
