Apply to Be a Student

As today’s church membership evolves, YTI is changing the conversations about God and training leaders for the future church. While the church body is shifting and today’s churches face challenges, we are cultivating people to lead and become part of the change through an education at Yellowstone Theological Institute. Join the community and be part of the mission to open the conversations about God to all.

Apply to the Only Theological Master’s Programs in Montana

With the only theological master’s programs in Montana, the Yellowstone Theological Institute offers a Master of Arts (MA), and Master of Divinity (MDiv).

Our master’s programs are designed to educate students—many of which are second-career students—through intensive programs, with knowledge that allows graduates to use their education in many roles, both inside and outside a church calling or position.

With three programs to choose from, students can expand their learning, grow in their faith, and apply their education to their current or future career.

Master of Arts

Master of Divinity

Convenient Formats

The MA program is designed to let students pursue this degree without uprooting their lives. Courses are offered both as weeklong intensives and as 10-week evening classes in Bozeman during each academic term, and students can choose to attend most courses either in-person or online via live video.

Areas of Concentration

To meet the needs of each student, the master’s programs include foundational classes with additional concentration areas to guide students into their study areas of focus, with a clear outline of classes and course schedules.

Why Join Us?

At YTI, we are training leaders of the future church to walk side by side with people who are convinced, who are skeptical, who don’t believe at all or who remain on the outside of religion because they don’t know where to turn. Our leaders and students at YTI recognize the need to meet people where they are in their spiritual journeys.

Tuition and Fees

At YTI, tuition and fees vary by program area and are made affordable through a small faculty, endowment-based giving and more. Tuition scholarships are considered for all master’s program candidates, based on their academics and GPA.
