Online Master in Comparative Theology

The School of Theology and Interfaith Studies at EUCLID (Euclid University) offers a primary external (distance or online) degree program specifically called: Master of Arts in Comparative Christian Theology (MCCT).

In some cases (government-sponsored students, intergovernmental organization staff, special request clergy), the degree is formally conferred under the name Intergovernmental Master of Arts in Comparative Christian Theology.

For Roman Catholic students, it is useful to note that the degree is recognized by the Holy See under applicable UNESCO conventions.

Academic Presentation

In the context of its interfaith / inter-religious mandate, EUCLID offers a online master degree in comparative theology that is primarily focused on Christianity but which also covers fundamentals of comparative religion.

Our faculty group has identified ‘must read’ textbooks that are combined with engaging multimedia resources including lectures and debates. EUCLID’s world-class LMS platform delivers the material in a logical progression which is both academic rigorous and achievable for part-time students.

Also, a Master’s thesis is technically optional, EUCLID recommends that all students consider producing a thesis on an area of interest in comparative theology.

Possible areas of specialization include:

  • Comparative Liturgical studies
  • Comparative Hermeneutics
  • Ecumenical Studies
  • Dialectic and Apologetics
  • Comparative World Religions
