Educating imaginative, resilient leaders for God's changing world.

Master of Theology (ThM)

The Master of Theology (ThM) is designed for persons already holding an M.Div degree or its equivalent and who wish to deepen their mastery in one area or discipline of theological study through reflection, research, and writing for the service of the Church.

The distinctive element of Columbia’s ThM program is the opportunity to work closely with faculty mentors in research of mutual interest. Students pursue a one-year course of full-time study that includes coursework in relevant curricular areas; a seminar in research methods; close work with a faculty mentor; the production of a publishable research thesis project; and, by application to the faculty, the opportunity to serve as a research or teaching assistant.

For questions, you may contact the Admissions Office at 404-687-4517. Prospective MDiv students are encouraged to attend one of our Seminary Weekends in Decatur, GA near Atlanta, offered in November and February of each year.
