M.A. in Biblical & Theological ministry

M.A. in Biblical & Theological ministry

Indianapolis Theological Seminary began offering classes for the first time in the fall of 2016 that will accumulate in an M.A. degree.  Students can also supplement that curriculum with Biblical Languages and additional internships to earn an M.Div. 

The unique component about ITS is that approximately 1/4 to 1/3 of the courses will be offered in local church contexts (internships, apprenticeships, etc.) while the rest will be taught in classroom settings.  Thus, ITS has the vision of wedding robust graduate-level academic instruction with real ministerial experience right here in Indianapolis. Internships will be carried out as arranged by the student and the supervising church/pastor; in-class courses will meet on Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday nights with occasional weekend intensives.
