MA with a Major in New Testament
Do you feel called to a ministry of scholarship and teaching? The master of arts with a major in New Testament provides you with the necessary competence in the Greek of the New Testament and an introduction to biblical Hebrew, hermeneutics, exegesis, history, culture, theology, 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 (New Testament) degree is excellent preparation for that.

About our Faculty
The New Testament faculty members are world-class scholars. Collectively, they’ve published dozens of books and hundreds of journal articles; they act as supervisors of countless dissertations and theses, and serve as editors on major journals, monographs, and Bible translations. Not only are they academically at the top of their game, but they also value pouring into students’ lives outside the classroom through connecting over coffee or during a run on the historic Platte River Trail.
