MA with a Major in Biblical Studies
Do you feel called to a ministry of scholarship and teaching? The master of arts with a major in biblical studies has you emphasize in either the Old or New Testament and then provides you with the necessary competence in biblical and cognate languages, exegesis, history, culture, theology, ethics, critical research, and global readings. Collectively, this enables you to confidently teach and write in a variety of church and adult education contexts. Also, if you are interested in a PhD program, the MA (biblical studies) degree is excellent preparation for that.
