sacklunch Posted October 8, 2010 Share Posted October 8, 2010 Just curious how many of you have heard, or are, doing two master's degrees before a PhD? I'm currently doing an MTS right now, but I am unsure if I will be able to get into any competitive programs once I'm done. Would it be a terrible idea, aside from the cost, to get another MTS/MA/MAR before applying to doctoral programs? If it matters I'm doing biblical studies at BC now, specifically interested in second temple period/early Christianity. By the end of this MTS I will have 4 years of Greek (with a couple upper level courses at HDS), 2 years of Hebrew, summer intensive course of intro German, and possibly an introduction to Aramaic (not sure if I can fit it in, yet). With this in mind, I had considered applying to Yale's MAR, or a similar program at HDS. How many applicants applying to MTS/MAR programs already have an MTS/MA? Would this help, or possibly hurt you? I at least know one person who is doing this. A friend from BC has an MDiv from Emory and decided to come to BC to get an MTS since she didn't feel prepared, ect., to apply to PhD programs. thoughts? -Nick Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
