The increasing demand for highly qualified and professionally competent leaders, managers and educators has become an important feature of modern professions worldwide.

The Master of Theology is a post-graduate degree that offers the opportunity for theological graduates, or graduates in cognate disciplines, to expand their learning, explore theological disciplines in a depth they had been unable to achieve in their first theological degree, and better equip them with the higher learning skills they had begun to develop through their undergraduate studies. The program provides graduates with training and experience (according to personal or professional development needs) by developing expertise in the fast moving areas of theological studies, which investigate key aspects of ancient and global religious traditions.
