Online Programs

Study with the #1 online graduate theology program. 

The Neuhoff School of Ministry at the University of Dallas has been offering online education since 2005. We were recently named the #1 Online Theology Master's Degree Program by, which provides an in-depth ranking of degree programs in colleges and universities throughout the country. We strive to provide the same "theological education for transformative service" in our online programs as we offer onsite. The same comprehensive curriculum, rigorous coursework, pastoral application, and community of learning which we've been fostering successfully for over 25 years are equally available to students participating in the online format.

Online Programs

*Hybrid modality (partially online/ partially on campus)

Online Program Benefits at the School of Ministry:

  • No residential or onsite attendance requirements. 
  • Online courses are offered by a regionally accredited, Catholic university.
  • Online master's degree courses offered by the Neuhoff School of Ministry are identical to the courses offered onsite. There is no "transcript difference" between students who take courses onsite or online.
  • Because the online and onsite courses are identical, students can do all courses online, all courses onsite, or they may choose to do some courses online and some onsite.
  • UD Neuhoff School of Ministry online classes are given by the same professors who teach onsite. Lectures, discussion groups and live tutorial chats are all led by a fully qualified professor, not by a teaching assistant. In UD School of Ministry online courses, the professor who writes the course teaches the course.
cross“ I could never have imagined when I began my online Master of Theological Studies that I would learn so much and grow as a person. I not only gained knowledge of our faith, but also experienced a great sense of community; UD does a wonderful job of promoting that sense of community to all students, no matter where they are in the world. ”- Angela Fruge, MTS '17
