Taylor Seminary offers several degree programs that have been carefully designed to prepare students for a lifetime of effective Christian service. A number of Diploma and Certificate programs are offered, as well.
Master of Divinity
The Master of Divinity program offers flexibility in course selection for those who are preparing for a form of Christian ministry. This program is intended for those who expect to be involved in staff positions in churches or in para-church ministries.
Master of Theological Studies
The Master of Theological Studies program is designed primarily to assist lay persons in developing a general theological understanding which will enrich their personal and professional lives. It is not considered to be adequate preparation for pastoral ministry unless supplemented by other ministry-related courses.
Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies
The Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies program will help students integrate the study of culture, Bible and theology and the mission of the church with special emphasis on developing skills for intercultural ministry of a non-pastoral nature. This program has been designed for students who anticipate a career in intercultural or multicultural settings.
Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies: TESOL
The Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies: TESOL program is intended for those who are seeking a career in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). The curriculum offers courses that integrate TESOL, culture, Bible and theology and the mission of the church.

The one-year Diploma in Intercultural Studies program is intended for those who want to deepen their understanding of the Christian mission and to foster the integration of this understanding with their personal and professional lives, and with a greater insight into cross-cultural contexts.
