The MAPS is a shorter version of the MDIV, while the MDIV is a lead-in to DMin programs.
The Master of Arts (MA) in Theology and the Master of Theological Studies (MTS) are academic degrees, focused on attaining knowledge of various theological disciplines. The MA prepares one seeking to pursue doctoral studies in various theological disciplines.
