I’m wanting to change careers from science to an eventual PhD in Moral Theology. I have found that, unlike science, navigating the different schools and programs are confusing. Here’s what I was thinking:
1) need to do some undergrad philosophy first, but then…
2) do masters in Biblical Studies/Theology to get a solid foundation
3) doctorate in Moral Theology/Social Ethics
I know the masters in Biblical studies is a controversial (for lack of better word) move, but I’d personally like to have that foundation. However, if it hurts my actual goal, then I will not pursue it.
The biggest issue I have, though, is all the different names to the degrees (e.g. MTS, MTh, MA, etc) and that some are not good to do if I wish to pursue a doctorate, which also has differing names, and those names differ depending on school.
Finally, what are some good schools, schools that are good in Moral Theology?
