Theology

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

To study theology, it is not necessary to believe in a specific faith or to want to join a particular religious tradition. It is the study of the divine in general and of the religious and philosophical beliefs that people have held throughout the centuries.
