Why do the MTh-Research Programme at ETS?

"On entering into a postgraduate research degree at ETS, I was stimulated and challenged in great measure.  ETS is a centre of academic excellence which encourages deep and careful study, allied to a reverential regard for God’s revealed truth, and I highly recommend the Seminary to anyone who seeks to further their theological study."
Iain Gibb, ETS Postgraduate Student

"Doing a research Masters at ETS has been extremely worthwhile.  Personal feedback from a supervisor who shares my research interests has enabled me to focus my energies and studies in the right channels.   There has been an excellent balance between guidance and being left to do my own research.  The cost seems irrelevant compared to the benefit obtained from far greater in-depth study of the Scriptures, and insights gained that I do not believe would have been possible any other way."
