The MTh is for those who have already completed a bachelor’s level degree in theology or Christian ministry and who desire to further develop their knowledge and skills in the fields of biblical studies, theology and applied theology.
Two tracks of the MTh are available, one with a focus on biblical studies and theology including biblical languages. The other track has an applied theology focus including some ministry related courses.
All courses consider the application of Biblical truth and empirical research to South Pacific life, society and cultures today.
The MTh is available as a two-year full-time residential program at the Banz campus. It is also available as a part-time program with a four-week intensive module at Banz or Port Moresby campuses each semester.
