Why HCHC Offers an Online ThM Degree Program
By offering this degree online, HCHC expands its reach to prospective students and clergy who are not able to pursue a degree on our Brookline campus.
The online ThM is a 24 credit-hour advanced master’s degree program designed to be completed full-time in one year or part-time. Students complete 18 credits of coursework and two required thesis courses (6 credits). The four primary areas of study in the Online ThM program include:
- Biblical (Old and New Testament);
- Historical (Church History and Patristics);
- Systematic (Dogmatics and Ethics); and
- Practical (Liturgics, Canon Law, and Pastoral Theology).
