Saint Louis University

Program of Studies

MTS students take 36 credit hours broadly distributed across the theological curriculum: 6 credit hours
of biblical studies (Introduction to OT and Introduction to NT); 6 credit hours of Christian history
(Christian Tradition I and Christian Tradition II); 6 credit hours of theological ethics or constructive
theology (Christian Theology Introduction and one elective); 6 credit hours of language; and 12 elective
hours, of which 3 are in a non-Christian religion. As one of their elective courses, MTS students may
choose to write a 30-40 page research paper in collaboration with their faculty mentor and a second
faculty reader in the spring of their second year of study.

In addition to coursework, MTS students are required to demonstrate competency in at least one foreign
language.

Higher purpose. Greater good.
