This emphasis is available 100% online or in our traditional campus setting. The flexibility this degree provides is ideal for students currently serving in churches or parachurch organizations, allowing them to obtain graduate Biblical and Theological education while learning practical ministry skills in their current church or parachurch ministry contexts. Courses completed in this program may be transferred to other programs such as the Master of Divinity.

This degree is also an ideal option for those in secular vocations who want to do graduate studies in Bible and Theology. Those whose work requires frequent travel can log in anywhere with broadband internet access. While pursuing the Master of Arts (Biblical and Theological Studies) you will engage with an outstanding faculty in the systematic study of Scripture and theology, be exposed to contemporary theological issues, and learn to think biblically, independently and constructively. Campus students will also be directed by a Seminary mentor or local church mentor during their training for the personal development of Christ-like character.
