At Talbot School of Theology, we’ve reshaped our degree programs to make them more convenient and accessible than ever. With fewer required credits and more online options, you can move more quickly into your calling while studying with reputable Christian scholars who are committed to the Bible and spiritual growth.
Fully Online Programs
Talbot’s fully online Master of Arts programs allow you to pursue God’s calling on your life from anywhere in the world. Or if you prefer a blend of online and on-campus courses, these programs give you the flexibility to mix and match the kinds of courses you want to take. Choose from these degree options, each designed to give you the skills needed to properly interpret, understand and apply God’s Word.
Online Programs with Summer Residency
Talbot’s Master of Arts with a concentration in Christian Apologetics is widely recognized as one of the world’s foremost apologetics programs. The Master of Arts with a concentration in Science and Religion is the only program of its kind in the United States. Both programs are available on campus or as distance learning programs in which most classes are online with a two-week summer residency.
Reduced-credit M.A. & M.Div. Programs
Talbot’s newly reconfigured programs are designed to enable you to complete your seminary education more quickly and more affordably, without sacrificing academic quality or ministry preparation. With the option of taking online courses, a seminary education from Talbot has never been more achievable. To further your calling, you won’t be required to come to campus nearly as much and, depending on your degree, maybe not at all. Instead of spending time on your commute, you can spend time where it counts most.
