Master of Arts with concentration in Biblical Studies, Historical Studies, Theological Studies, Brethren Studies, Ministry Studies, Peace Studies
54-credit degree designed for further doctoral work, non-profit, faith-based vocations, or simply wrestling with theological cares and concerns. Our approach to this research and writing degree is much more "liberal arts," if you will. Meaning, because orthopraxy (how we practice our faith) is just as important as orthodoxy (what we believe about our faith), then you will explore classes in ministry in addition to the reading and writing. It's all about integrating what we learn with how we live and lead.
