Master of Arts in Biblical Studies
Earliest start date
The Master of Arts (M.A.) degree is a two-year professional degree that focuses upon advanced studies in the Word of God. The M.A. in Biblical Studies requires a basic academic core that includes 27 semester hours of biblical studies, 18 semester hours of theological & historical studies, 12 semester hours of practical ministry studies, and 3 semester hours of field education.
This program is ideally suited to persons who seek greater biblical and theological knowledge, but who do not desire to become pastors. Additionally, pastors who are already established in ministry and have earned a bachelor's degree in religion may desire the M.A. for further study and recognition.
