About this Program:
The Master’s in Comparative Theology is a rigorous program designed to give students a broad exposure to religious tradition and a variety of theological specialties, and to allow students to explore a topic in depth through the preparation of a thesis. The Master’s in Comparative Theology aims to help form future generations of theologians through a program of study that covers religious texts, historical and systematic theology, comparative theology, and ethics. Rather than treating these as isolated areas of technical expertise, the program considers each of them as a crucial element of an integrated theological vision. The Master’s in Comparative Theology can be excellent preparation for beginning a Ph.D., or it can lead into further work in other fields such as library science, social work, law, or publishing. The aim is that graduates go on to work in the academy, religious institutions, or any other realm of society, they will be equipped to think and respond theologically with depth, precision, and charity.
