MA(TS) Degree Fully Distance

We are pleased to announce that BOTH tracks of our Master of Arts (Theological Studies) degree (MA(TS)) are now available as fully distance programs. Students may earn this degree, either the General Academic or Research Track, by taking courses online, via video-conference or by enrolling in a one-week module course in Kansas City or at any of our multi-campus sites (Bethany, OK; Mount Vernon, OH; Nashville, TN; Quincy, MA).

“We are delighted to offer the Master of Arts (Theological Studies) degree as a fully distance program.  Serious, sustained graduate-level study is available from virtually any location, and at your own pace,” shared Dr. Joseph Coleson, Professor of Old Testament and Director of the MA(TS) degree program.  “Stellar faculty on the five campuses of NTS will provide guidance and serve as your mentors, whether your goal is to specialize in a single theological discipline—Old Testament, New Testament, Christian History, Christian Thought/Theology—or to gain a generalist’s understanding across several disciplines.”

The MA(TS) degree offers a strong theological foundation designed to equip the minister for faithful and effective ministry. To learn more about the MA(TS) degree, or to start the admissions process, please contact the NTS Office of Admissions and the Registrar at or 800.831.3011, ext. 5442; or log on to

“If you want a graduate theological degree, NTS’s distance delivery may make it possible for you to do so,” continued Coleson.  “I invite you to check us out; you’ll be glad you did-and so will your partners in ministry.
