Master of Biblical Studies (M.B.S.) Curriculum
The Master of Biblical Studies program provides in-depth theological training, particularly to those who feel that they have not been called to a pulpit ministry. It is also a foundation and prerequisite for the Th.M. program. (All new students, with the exception of some transfer students, must begin their studies at CTS in the M.B.S. program.)
