The Master of Evangelical Theology Program (MET)

The Master of Evangelical Theology program is designed to produce a person who will apply theological truth and insight to the issues and questions of life, both within the church, and outside of it. It is designed to help the student understand that theological studies are inherently practical, since they focus on God’s revelation of Himself and His good plan for His creation.

The MET is a two-year degree program. It combines course work in all of the theological disciplines with academic research resulting in a thesis. This program calls for both theological reflection and practical application.

The ideal student for the MET is one who has a bachelor’s degree in biblical or theological studies. It builds upon previous theological studies and is especially suited for those who plan to continue their graduate studies, and/or plan to be involved in leadership of various ministries.
