Master of Theological Studies

A Professional Degree Providing Tools for Pastoral Leadership

The St. Norbert College Master of Theological Studies (M.T.S.) program, offered in De Pere, Wis., and Albuquerque, N.M., grounds students like you in the Christian tradition as a base from which to address the changing realities of congregations. Classes are offered evenings and Saturday mornings for maximum flexibility.

Through the core courses, you’ll learn the history of Christian doctrine and critically engage in theological reflection about the essential components of the faith. Through course selection, you’ll be able to tailor your education to your interests and needs.

Degree programs and certificate programs are both available.

Join us as we explore the challenging reality of Catholicism and the Christian faith in these unique times.

“The key strength of the M.T.S. program is the people. We have an outstanding faculty who are passionately committed to the faith and committed to educate students in the transformative power of the Gospel and the Church. They are active researchers who themselves contribute to the ongoing scholarly exploration of the Christian tradition. Plus our first-rate students are committed and inquisitive. They are true sources of inspiration and wisdom!”

Student Perspective

“Pope John XXIII, in calling the Second Vatican Council, sought ‘to open the windows...and let in some fresh air.’  This is what the MTS program did for me personally.”
