Online Master of Arts in Theological Studies


An in-service degree for busy ministry leaders that allows you to finish a master's degree in two years,* without having to relocate

The Master of Arts in Theological Studies (MATS) online is a 48-credit program for those who wish to hone their effectiveness in ministry, including specialized areas such as teaching and church related writing. This online degree includes the same admission, course and graduation expectations as the resident program. It has the added advantage of being designed so that students can pursue the degree without having to relocate to the AGTS campus.

WallsBeginning in the fall semester 2015, AGTS will start the implementation of the online MATS. The seminary will add courses each term until the online MATS is fully complete before the 2017–2018 academic year. Students taking three courses each term (fall, spring and summer) can complete the online MATS program in approximately two years* and can start as early as fall of 2015.

Dr. Jim Railey, AGTS dean of faculty, is confident in the online degree's distinct benefits: "The MATS online helps ensure there will be minimal interruption to students' regular lives, allowing them to continue in their ministries while gaining additional skills and knowledge."
