I’m not sure if this is the right place the ask this question, but I’m not sure where else to ask it.
My question is essentially whether the degree Master of Theological Studies will be sufficient (at least for most universities) for entrance into a doctoral program in theology, theological studies, or religious studies with a Christian focus.
I am finishing an honours B.A in anthropology this year, and though I was planning to do graduate work in anthropology, over the past year I have [somewhat prayerfully] discerned that I wish to become a religious scholar. I do a lot of thinking about theological issues and apologetics. I also want to bring an anthropological perspective to my theological studies. However, because I have done a degree in anthropology and not in religious studies or Christian studies, or theology, I cannot enter directly into a Master of Arts degree in theology. However, the MTS degree is open to me, and I am hoping that this degree program will provide a springboard to Ph.D, D.Phil, or Th.D studies.
Thank you for your input.
Peace be with you.
