Graduate School of Theology

Be Prepared

In your lifetime, you may not need to save humanity from a flood. But you do need deep study to become the Christian leader God wants you to be.

Students come from all walks of life:

  • Just completing bachelor’s degree
  • Moving from another career into ministry
  • Currently working in ministry
  • Currently working in careers outside of ministry, but wanting a deeper understanding of the Bible and theology

Tuition is $460 per credit hour, but most students (degree-seeking, maintaining a 3.0 GPA) pay just $322 per credit hour. That means you could get your M.A.C.M. or M.T.S. degree for as little as $15,456, or your M.Div. for as little as $23,506, plus the cost of books and fees.
