Well let's start at the beginning. First, one must earn a BA or BS degree (or its equivalent). This usually takes about four years. Once this is accomplished, one will need an MDiv. MTS, or MAR degree, this will take two to four years. Finally ThD and PhD (theology) programs vary in length. Most involve two to four years of course work, in addition to a dissertation. Both the course work and dissertation should take a total of five to seven (though I have heard of nine!) years to complete. From start to finish then it requires 11 to 17 years to complete, though the matriculation period for solely the PhD/ThD is only five to seven years.
