Fully Online Master of Theological Studies Degree Now Available

Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary announces its entirely online Master of Theological Studies (MTS) degree program is available for the first time beginning this fall. Dually accredited, this 49-hour, two year program allows students to earn a seminary degree from anywhere in the world without disrupting their current life and ministry.

This program links students with Golden Gate’s faculty, as it integrates a wide variety of online methods including graphic and video lectures, video and audio chats, threaded email discussions, shared applications, wiki documents, online exams, and posting shared research. The courses are asynchronous so students can conveniently blend assignments into their work week.

“The online concept maximizes learning through weekly interaction with qualified faculty and fellow students,” said Dr. Rick Durst, director of Golden Gate’s online education.

“While students don’t have to travel to a campus, the serious masters-level coursework means students will need to create time in their schedule to do the work,” Dr. Jeff Iorg, seminary president added. “We are committed to delivering high-quality educational opportunities in every venue.”

Courses are taught by professors, not teaching assistants. The commitment to excellent education includes access to qualified librarians who assist students in finding the best databases and electronic works in the Seminary’s collection and server. Students also receive 24/7 technical support for their courses.

Class size is limited to ensure a high quality educational experience, so those interested are encouraged to apply for admission now. Transfer credit is available. Apply online at www.ggbts.edu or call toll-free 888-442-8701 for more information.

“Golden Gate Seminary is one of the world’s most experienced theological schools in online education,” said Dr. Michael Martin, Vice President of Academic Affairs. “Our first online class was offered in 1998, and our commitment is always to provide a high quality education with the maximum student/teacher and peer-to-peer interaction. Student feedback for our program to date has been excellent.”

Dually accredited by Association of Theological Schools (ATS) and Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), the online Master of Theological Studies is affordable and requires no on-campus time.
