JD/Master of Theological Studies

JD/Master of Theological Studies

  • Study Level Masters
  • Duration 48 months
Our combined four-year program in law and theology prepares students for ministries in a host of fields, such as advocacy for social justice issues and teaching. It also means students can graduate with degrees from both Duke Divinity and Duke Law in four years instead of five. The Master of Theological Studies (M.T.S.) degree is a program tailored to fit the needs of students pursuing advanced doctoral studies or seeking careers in teaching or research. It also provides a strong foundation for students called to serve in lay ministry roles throughout the church, academy, and world. Duke Law School offers a Juris Doctor (J.D.) program that provides a firm grounding in the core subjects of the study of law and rigorous training in legal analysis, reasoning, and writing. The program also combines traditional coursework with practical skills, clinics, research tutorials, and small seminars.
