This fall I will graduate from Liberty University, with a Masters degree (MA/Religion: Biblical Studies). I was going to transfer to Regent for my second MA/New Testament. However due to costs (etc) I think I am staying at Liberty to get my MDiv/Biblical Studies (just with a focus on New Testament, which I really already have). I am, however, looking down the road even further. If teaching is the field I am interested in, would it be better to go directly into a PhD program right after the MDiv or would it be better to get the ThM first? Is the ThM (at Liberty or Southeastern) a good "work up" to the PhD? Just curious. Thanks. Martin.
