The Master of Arts in Theology reinforce theological underpinnings for a truly biblical ministry. This fully accredited degree provides a well-rounded exposure and updating of one’s knowledge and application of theological concepts. The degree is designed to enrich anyone actively involved in Christian ministry and equip the student to responsibly respond to a culture asking real questions that deserve real answers. As a result of this program, the student will be able to respond far more effectively and offer a deeper ministry context.
Most of the program can be completed online from your home or office to provide freedom for your pace of study within the parameters of set semesters – fall, spring and summer. The degree includes two intercultural experiences, which are a unique feature of the degree. The need for graduate level education continues to grow as ministries find that they are working with an increasingly educated audience and/or needing to more effectively penetrate the culture they are trying to reach.
