The Loyola Master of Theological Studies degree is a rigorous program designed to give students both a broad exposure to the Christian tradition and a variety of theological specialties and to allow students to explore a topic in depth through the preparation of a thesis.
Loyola’s MTS can be excellent preparation for beginning a Ph.D. or it can lead into further work in other fields such as library science, social work, law, or publishing.
Loyola’s faculty is internationally recognized for its scholarly excellence. The department includes Catholic and non-Catholic faculty who together nurture a collegial atmosphere. We are a community in which rigorous, lively debate and intellectual generosity flourish.
