Master of Arts in Theological Studies

General

Program Description

Overview

Theology impacts everything, whether it be our understanding of history, our relationships with religious institutions, or our ethical decision making. Everyone is a theologian because everyone has thoughts or opinions about God. Unfortunately, these notions are not always logical, scripturally accurate, or integrated with one’s broader philosophy of life.

Williamson College’s Master of Arts in Theological Studies is open to anyone desiring to develop the skills, techniques, and concepts for studying, practicing, and leading theological discourse. This degree program will equip students to build a firm Biblical foundation and connect theological truths with their impact on daily living. We invite you to journey with us and embark on the great endeavor of studying God, faith, and practice.

Program Goals

Articulate the fundamental aspects of Christian Theology

Use the historic growth of the church to identify future trends in order to keep scripture as the constant in an ever-changing culture

Demonstrate an ability to think, research, synthesize, integrate, and apply key theological principles and concepts to ethics and leadership

Articulate the major differences and commonalities between the historical Christian theological system and other major theological systems

Develop a robust and coherent theological apologetic for the student’s personal faith.
