The goal of the Master of Arts in Theological and Biblical Studies is to equip students to be competent in the major areas of academic inquiry which pertain to the Old Testament, New Testament, and Christian doctrine. The curriculum focuses on biblical languages, the basic components of the Christian tradition, and thesis development, as well as distinct and intensive tracks in biblical studies, historical/systematic theology, or an interdisciplinary combination of the two. Consequently, students who complete this degree are prepared for further research in Christian scholarship and possible endeavors in other master or doctoral programs.
